New York City's police department has recently stepped up efforts to encourage subway dance artists to work in legal performance spaces as an alternative to dancing in subway cars. Instead of arrests, officers are handing out palm cards to subway dancers that read, "Make money. Avoid arrest. Dance!" that direct them to participate in outdoor space set aside by the city for the performers to dance safely. The program is part of New York’s attempt to balance the needs of order with the desire to avoid unnecessary entanglements of young men in the justice system.
