Daniel Andrews must explain why dance schools are being left behind and restrictions on private dance classes are not being lifted.
Many locally run dance schools are confused as to why dance classes at state and private schools are able to commence with social distancing rules, but local dance schools are unable to open.
From 22 June restrictions of 10 people per class will still be in place for classes, with many schools having classes of 15, dance schools will find it challenging to tell five students they are unable to attend.
This is despite the majority of dance school’s ability to comply with the state?s social distancing regulations and can provide a safe environment for students and teachers. Dancing is a great form of exercise; it is one of the largest participation programs for girls in Australia, except in Victoria Daniel Andrews has prevented dance schools opening.
The Andrews Labor Government need to consult with the industry immediately to work on a solution to help get these small businesses back to business.
