What Are The Rules For Limbo?

In Limbo, dancers must follow rules to bend backward to pass under a bar, keeping their backs facing toward the floor. They must not touch the bar or the ground with any part of their body other than their feet and cannot turn their heads or necks to the side. The Limbo dance continues with the bar being lowered after each successful pass, and the last person remaining who can pass under the bar wins.

You can buy a Limbo bar or easily make one using a long, sturdy dowel rod or PVC pipe and decorate it with colorful ribbons, flowers, or other decorative elements to match your wedding theme.
