Government to agree that dance is an educational art form not just a hobby

In the last few months I have felt that the arts has been shunned and pushed aside and made to feel, like the training and education is just a hobby. Not a career. Not an education itself! 
I have had enough, I want government to recognise that anybody who teaches under the Royal Academy of Dance, the Imperial Society of Teachers in Dancing and any other Dance Qualification are educational institutions. 
My students spend time and develop their craft, they then go through the school and go into Vocational educational dance and performing arts colleges. 
Dance training is not just a hobby! 
Please help me make government understand that our students need the studio to survive this pandemic. Not just their school education but a socially distanced studio where they can perform dance and forget for 45 minutes to an hour what is going on outside. 
If the children can go to school they can come to their dance classes! We are not a hobby we are an educational institution that teaches a curriculum and holds regulated exams! 
Yes we are in a pandemic but if the teachers want to teach let them teach!
