Well now, we all know just how well that tactic worked in the USA NOW 

Soon you will read stories of how those drug dealers are plying their 
trade in the School yards instead of those seedy nightclubs,  ahemmm!   
Have the Baptist Missionaries preceded the Jazz musicians to Bejing ??  
  Damn.   the next thing you know they will also ban Sex standing Up 
because it might incite Dancing. :))

 Beijing curbs disco to cramp "crazy" drug takers 
 Fri Jun 23, 7:41 AM ET 
 Beijing has banned disco and other dance music in private rooms of 
 nightclubs and karaoke bars to curb the flood of illegal drugs into 
  the capital's entertainment venues, Chinese newspapers reported 
 "Because many drug takers regularly dance and go crazy to upbeat 
 'disco' music in private rooms, police have specially requested 
  karaoke machines not have this music," the Beijing Times newspaper 
 Club owners were now expected to delete disco and "other forms of 
 vulgar entertainment" from karaoke machines in private rooms, the 
 Beijing News said, as part of a "responsibility agreement" written up 
 by police. 
 The agreement, signed by more than 1,100 club owners, is the latest 
 in a general crackdown on crime in nightlife venues launched this 
 month, prompted by a sharp rise in drug trafficking and violence 
 involving customers and staff. 
 The Beijing News said Thursday police were planning random urine 
 tests for employees at Beijing's clubs, citing employees' "addiction" 
 as a major source of drug trafficking.
