In 1970s New York, when many groups were marginalized and excluded from society, a dance-based culture emerged that allowed and encouraged the total freedom of self-expression. But can the city's vibrant subculture continue to thrive after Mayor Giuliani's revival of Prohibition-era Cabaret Laws that strictly regulate dancing? freedom2dance chronicles the long and twisted history of these restrictive laws through the lens of New York City's legendary underground dance community.

"freedom2dance is a short but very sharp documentary exploring New York City's Cabaret Laws. Through this lens, the film asks pointed questions about marginalization, identity, freedom of expression, inherent bigotry in the long-standing governmental regulations, and contemplates the boundaries that define dance as an art form."
