I wanna go dancing on lighted floors like the one in Saturday Night Fever. Are there any in L.A.?

Meet me at the Grammy Museum and we’ll practice our moves at its James Brown exhibit, where (until January 22, at least) the LED-powered dance floor follows your footsteps with colored lights. Once you’re suited up and ready to hustle, do your best Tony Manero and strut over to the Grand Star Jazz Club in Chinatown, where the lights are in their element beneath a mirrored ball and herd of hipsters. These floors were rare even in the 1970s—Paramount built the movie’s 16-by-24-foot original inside a Brooklyn disco.
