"Dancing was introduced at the prison in 2007, as a means of rehabilitating prisoners at a facility once notorious for its gang problem.
"Every able-bodied prisoner must dance. If they refuse, they lose privileges, mostly conjugal visits. According to prison supervisor Byron Garcia, the dancing occupies up to five hours a day. However he rejected claims he's abusing the prisoners' rights by forcing them to dance so many hours a day."
