Leinster House, Dublin 2.

Cayla Hollywood (top), of McKinley School of Dance, joined fellow members of Performing Arts sector of Ireland holding a silent, socially distant protest over the continued closure of businesses.

The group includes dance school owners, drama and stage school owners, dance teachers, professional dancers and others.

They are calling on the government to reopen their sector, since sports and similar activities are being allowed to re-open under the easing of restrictions this week.
