Mass. Christian school approves dancing policy

Posted: Updated:

QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - It's now OK to dance at Eastern Nazarene College.

The private Christian school in Quincy has approved a policy that clarifies an ambiguous stance that for decades kept students from dancing at school-sponsored events.

The college had been adhering to the Church of the Nazarene Manual, which bans "all forms of dancing that detract from spiritual growth and break down proper moral inhibitions and reserve."

The Patriot Ledger reports that dancing is now permitted as long as the Student Development Office approves the event and the music in advance. The new policy says songs can't be "vulgar or overtly suggestive in nature," and dance movements "must be appropriate and not sexually suggestive."

With a policy now in place, the school will host its first student dance this winter.
