Harriet Gingell started this petition to UK Parliament and
Dance & performing arts teachers all across the uk are made to jump through countless hoops to be able to put their Amateur performers on stage to exhibit to family & friends what they have been learning in class through the year. All councils have countless rules on what is required to put our students on stage often for 2/3 minutes of dancing & many councils do not know what exactly is required which makes things extremely difficult & involves a lot of admin work. These amateur performers do not get paid & the performances are not put on to profit. In many cases they cost us teachers, just break even or any profits made are donated to charity. We want the law simplified for Amateur performers to be able to perform on stage without having to submit countless applications just incase the authorities decide to pay an impromptu visit to the theatres/town halls ect that we have paid a large amount to hire to be told if we do not have everything exactly as the government insists an amateur performer needs we can not carry on & the show would have to be cancelled which would leave us dance teachers/studio owners with a massive loss of earnings. The majority of the children that participate in these performances are aged 2 - 13 years. Is it really nessary to have to jump through all the hoops for them to perform for their parents & Grandparents? We want a law to be made specifically for amature performances that is regulated throughout the country so that everyone knows the exact requirements to put on a performance in a local theatre or similar.
