When it opened in 1980 on West 39th Street, Danceteria upped the ante for cultural crosspollination in New York nightlife. Philip Glass, Devo and a rising star named Madonna were just a few of the artists who performed at the club, which moved to a three-floor location at 30 West 21st Street with a dancefloor, video installation room and live performance stage. Jim Fouratt, Danceteria's talent booker, and video artist Kit Fitzgerald join us to talk about the club and its place on the city's scene.
