“At the hottest night spots, four things are happening. First men and women are being brought together. Disco is a very social activity. Second, people are dancing. Third, a unique environment is being created using special electronic lighting effects and powerful sound systems. In these disco environments, soft lighting mixes with shadows away from the dance floors, and bright, flashing lights create a stage-show-like atmosphere around the dancers. Fourth, reality is left outside the disco’s door, so that inside, fantasy has a chance to thrive.”
