Put on your red shoes and dance the opposite of the blues — Mayor de Blasio has officially repealed the city’s cabaret law, which outlawed dancing in most city bars.
“It's 2017,” Mayor de Blasio said at a signing ceremony Monday night. “There should not be a law in New York City against dancing.”
“I'm ready to break out into any impromptu dancing tonight,” Councilman Rafael Espinal, who introduced the repeal into the City Council, told the Daily News.
The cabaret law prohibited cutting a rug without a cabaret license — which fewer than 100 of the 26,000 bars and restaurants in the city have.Olympia Kazi, a member of the NYC Artists Coalition and the advocacy group Let NYC Dance, said it was “basically a ban on social dancing.”
“Social dancing should not be regulated. That's an expression — a fundamental expression of human beings, and it should not be criminalized,” she said.
But for decades, it was — starting in 1926, when it went into effect mainly to go after Harlem jazz clubs where black and white patrons freely mixed.
And even more recently, the rule was selectively enforced to bust up bars patronized by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, as well as bars and clubs in communities of color, critics say.Espinal — who represents the nightlife-rich neighborhood of Bushwick, where the mayor signed the bill at nightclub and music venue Elsewhere — said the law has had a “notoriously negative impact on nightlife in general, but mostly nightlife that's patronized by communities of color, the LGBT community and other marginalized communities.”
“I think now more than ever, especially given our current political climate in Washington, we should be focusing on also doing away with laws that have a history of suppressing or oppressing New Yorkers,” Espinal continued.
There are still other legal challenges to zoning — including archaic zoning requirements that Kazi said they’ll continue to lobby to be amended.
It’s not the city’s only effort to cozy up to the nightlife world — in September, de Blasio signed a bill establishing an Office of Nightlife to be headed by the city’s most in-demand job, the Night Mayor. The top nightlife official has not yet been chosen. That bill, too, was introduced by Espinal.
“I feel that New York City's nightlife is an integral part of our identity and over the years and decades, there have been so many rules and regulations that have only hampered the potential to flourish,” he said.
Authorities in Brussels are enforcing one of Europe's more obscure fiscal levies: a tax on dancing.
Cafes, bars and clubs must pay the government 40 cents for every one of their dancing customers, per night. The tax was introduced in 2014, but authorities are clamping down on unpaid fees in the run-up to Christmas.
One Brussels club, which has been hit with a bill for almost €2,000 for its toe-tapping customers, has even asked revellers to “please stop dancing” using tongue-in-cheek posters on its windows.
“The tax inspector explained that the tax is based on the number of people dancing,” Nicholas Boochie, artistic director of Bonnefooi, told local website Bruzz. But the tax has raised a question we’d never thought we’d have to ponder: “Is throwing your arms in the air dancing?” Boochie asked, presumably looking for a way to avoid paying the fee.
According to the city’s finance department, public dancing is a costly business for Brussels, “entail[ing] additional expenditure, in particular in the field of safety, public peace and public order.” The ‘dancing tax’ covers these outgoings.
It looks like Bonnefooi won’t be the only one to receive a retrospective bill: “Sometimes taxes are applied, but there are not enough officials to collect them,” Marc Van Muylders, of Horeca Bruxelles, told Bruzz.
Boochie said that he would prefer to use the €2,000 levy to pay for more performers at his club. “I first thought it was a joke, but it really does turn out to be true,” he added.
