2003_6_dancing.jpgThe Bloomberg administration is faced with deciding how best to change New York City's cabaret laws: While there may be possibility of simply asking clubs to apply for an updated license, some officials feel that would further alienate businesses (already hurting after the smoking ban). There are also community groups worried that wider access to licenses will cause more quality of life issues. At any rate, dance clubs will still need to be regulated by the health department and zoning, fire, and building codes. Legalize Dancing NYC is the group trying to fight for New Yorkers who want to shimmy to some music. Gothamist hopes more fair licenses are pursued, it's lame to be busted because patrons are dancing to the good music and seems antithetical to life here.
