MORNING REPORT

Dance

May 05, 1987| Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

Dances have been approved for the people of Beijing--as long as the lights are kept bright, no liquor is served and the band has matching jackets. The official China News Service published city government regulations Monday that permit "cultural work-units," hotels, restaurants and private businessmen to arrange dances. Among the regulations: A dance hall must have at least five watts of light per square yard, the band must wear the same clothes, have at least four musicians and know at least two tunes, and must play only music that has been legally published or broadcast on television or radio. There is no regulation on the type of dancing.
