Happy New Year!

As we limber up, groove, pivot, and transition into the new year, we stand at the brink of transformation. Following Saturday's visit to the Guggenheim for a captivating Ladies of Hip Hop and Dancing Matters discussion, we propel ourselves into the next phase of our DANCE FREE NYC advocacy campaign pushing for zoning law changes to enhance dance opportunities. YOUR support is crucial as we prepare to testify before the City Planning Commission in two weeks—join us in advocating for more dance freedom!

Dance Free NYC is our colation of organizations who want to end poicies and laws that supress dance and culture. Having successfully repealed the cabaret law in 2017, we now focus on addressing zoning issues. Currently, live rock bands are permitted in all bars and restaurants citywide, but dancing is restricted to only 20% of the city. We endorse the Mayor's Department of City Planning's City of Yes proposals, advocating for a more inclusive dance environment. Check out our campaign press release press release and informative videos for more details. 

The City Planning Comission is holading a public hearing January 24, 2024.

Join us to:
Let's co-create a more inclusive and vibrant city!
