Dancing is now legal in this town

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - July 14, 2009

Dancing the night away is now illegal in Iowa's largest city.

But that's likely to change.

The Des Moines City Council has given preliminary approval to a measure that OK's public dancing in the city after 2 a.m.

A final decision won't come until mid-August.

The ordinance dates back to at least 1942 and bans public all-night dancing.
