For some reason, many people seem to think that Mormons aren’t allowed to dance.  While I agree that some Mormons can’t dance very well, Mormons certainly can dance!

mormon-menIn fact, the Mormon Church frequently sponsors dances for young men and women, ages 14-18.  These dances are open to all youth–you don’t need to be Mormon–though certain standards are upheld.  For example, modest clothing is required in order to attend.  If you would like to attend a Mormon dance, ask one of your Mormon friends when the next one is in your area!

Many recent dances styles are suggestive and inappropriate.  Mormons are encouraged to avoid these styles of dance.  A Mormon pamphlet, called For Strength of Youth, says:

When dancing, avoid full body contact with your partner. Do not use positions or moves that are suggestive of sexual behavior.

However, there are lots of fun, clean dance styles!  Did you know that Benji Schwimmer, the winner of the second season of the TV show So You Think You Can Dance, is Mormon?
