Gaza as Footloose

It looks like dancing (as well as homosexuality) will be banned in Gaza:
After controversies when a Hamas-led council halted a dance festival and Islamist gunmen stopped a rap band performing in Gaza, Dr Zahar defended the enforcement of a strict interpretation of Islam.

“A man holds a woman by the hand and dances with her in front of everyone. Does that serve the national interest?” Dr Zahar said on the Arabic website Elaph. “If so, why have the phenomena of corruption and prostitution become pervasive in recent years?”

I'm pretty sure we can put a stop to this by infiltrating Kevin Bacon, his stunt dancer, and Kenny Loggins into Gaza.
