Allow Dance & Performing Art Schools to open safely following the guidelines that were set for us in September.

The mental health of our youth depends on it.


Dance & The Performing Arts is a place of escape for thousands of children, teenagers and adults across the country. For a lot of people they rely on it for their mental health. As this is how they keep their minds and bodies healthy.

Art is a way for people to express themselves with no words. Suicide rates are at an all time high and we MUST consider the mental wellbeing of our country just as much as we do the physical.

If regular schools can open, we should be able to open.
