Jimmy Fallon announced that “the dance” had been banned on his show saying:

“It’s a bummer, but rules are rules,”

Bacon replied from his waiting room:

“Dancing is illegal? This is ‘The Tonight Show’. There has to be dancing!”

The “Footloose” star played the music and broke into the iconic dances from the 1984 movie. Bacon was shortly joined by a group of young women who assisted to change Fallon’s mind. The late-night host declared that “dance is now legal.”
