When "Dance" isn't Dance

Here's an intriguing one from nbcnews.com.

A sharply divided court in New York says lap dances don't promote culture in a community the way ballet or other artistic endeavors do, and so shouldn't get a tax break.

The article states that a lawsuit was filed by a strip club in Albany, NY that was trying to take advantage of the tax examption for "dramatic or musical arts performances".

The fascinating thing to me isn't that the lawsuit was denied. It is that the state's top court was split 4 to 3.
