Subject: Ontario Dance Studios Unfairly Targeted In Recent Provincial Closures

-----------------------------------------------

Hello my name is ——- INSERT NAME

I am a resident of  ----INSERT YOUR REGION, Ontario and reside at — INSERT ADDRESS

 

I am emailing today to demand that the unfair targeting of my child's dance studio, The Dance PAC and all dance studios in the Toronto / Ottawa / Peel areas be stopped. We are asking that the words 'dance studios' be removed from the modified stage 2 closures list where they have been unfairly lumped in with adult fitness classes.

The new restrictions put forth by the Government of Ontario includes the closing of Dance Studios. Why? No other children’s activities or sports have been named in these closures. There is no reason why kids can train in hockey, soccer, martial arts, gymnastics, cheer etc., but not dance. This impacts children greatly by taking away their access to exercise and recreation, and it also affects their mental health adversely. 

Local Dance Studios have worked extremely hard to make it safe for their dancers to return and to get doing what they love. To close them down now is unfair and is targeting an area that hasn’t been affected by Covid at all.

Please hear the parents of children that dance and allow Dance Studios to stay open with proper Covid protocols in place. 

Help our kids stay dancing and doing what they love, just like all the other children in other activities that are allowed to stay open.

This is an urgent matter, please take immediate action. 

Signed: ——— INSERT YOUR NAME
