Real life Footloose in Oklahoma - dance canceled

This is like real life Footloose stuff.   

An Oklahoma town canceled a Valentine's dance because of a city ordinance banning dancing within 500 feet of a church.

The dance in Henryetta was scheduled to take place in a store that is about 300 feet away from a church. That would make it illegal under city rules.

One person who lives in the town of 6,500 said she didn't want the dance to be canceled, but said that "We can't pick and choose what laws we uphold."

Mayor Jennifer Clason told the station the city council would consider changing the law at its next meeting on February 22.
