[Brigham Young]
President Young spoke against the present practice of dancing. Mingling with all manner of people in the dance. The control of dancing was left to the bishops as they were the judges and had the over sight of their wards and for them to always be present at all such parties in their wards. -- Winter Quarters, Nebraska
