As Tom has mentioned the Southern Baptists being fearful of sex  standing up 
leading to dancing, I'll bring up that what is even scarier than St.  Louis' 
purported crime statistics is some of the decisions and messages of  the 
Missouri Baptist Conference component of Southern Baptists meeting in  out-state MO 
this week.  (Anyone morbidly curious can  go to >_http://www.stltoday.com/_ 
(http://www.stltoday.com/) < and look up  this week's news entries on Missouri 
Baptist Conference Meeting.  I was  Southern Baptist in out-state Missouri when 
my church announced it would hold an  alternate party for us so we could stay 
away from the sinful Senior Prom.   But it was too late for me, I had already 
seen Elvis on the sinful TV, sang Rock  Around the Clock on the band tour 
bus, etc.  I went to the Prom.
On getting the young to dance (therefore to come so they can dance), it is  
indeed all about the beat, instead of about how many chords and how  splendidly 
one plays.  Easy to see that when an one of our  locally popular Zydeco Bands 
draws several thousand to an urban park  and keeps 'em jumping all evening on 
3 chords, but a good beat, and  yes Bill G., letting the audience come up to 
rub spoons or whatever on a chest  board, looks mighty like a washboard 
attraction to me.
