May I have this dance?

To the editor,

My experience at Sensations Cabaret was not the same as articulated in "Where goes the neighbourhood?" (March 23). It is not the dark and seedy place that I pictured when reading the article. The dancers were amazing---for their acrobatic feats as much as their nudity---the staff is very friendly and the manager was personable with patrons. The doormen were on a visible mission of safety, looking out for the dancers, staff and patrons. Having been to all similar facilities that this town has to offer, I can say Sensations is definitely one of the better-run facilities in Metro.

I understand the concern voiced by the community, but there are more pressing matters at hand in the downtown core, such as the pre-existing prostitutes, the crack houses and the fact that you can score any sort of drug within a two-minute walk from wherever you're standing if you know the correct sources.

My friends and I have gone to Sensations four times and plan to continue going there in the future. Please, address the illegal ventures in the community, instead of wasting limited resources on attacking a well run, legally sound business.
