No longer a land of a thousand dances

A New York state judge has held that there is no constitutional right to dance, rejecting a challenge to that city's requirement that restaurants and bars need a cabaret license to permit people to dance. Apparently there aren't that many cabarets in New York anymore. Stupid law. Good decision.

The plaintiffs' lawyer remains convinced that dancing is a constitutionally protected expressive activity. Time to take that dancing to the streets!

Don’t know about the constitutionality.
Butt some modern dancing is very very expressive.
