NSW Premier Gladys Berjeklian announced easing of several COVID 19 restrictions. 

Dancing will now be allowed in weddings receptions.  However, the requirement is for 20 people only to be nominated to be able to do dancing. 

Live performances will return across NSW next week with theatres, cinemas and concert halls allowed to increase audience numbers to as many as 1000 as COVID-19 restrictions are eased.

This decision was made based on NSW reporting three consecutive days of zero community transmissions, the Premier's Major Events Taskforce wants entertainment and conference centres to significantly boost capacity.

From October 1, theatres will be able to sell tickets for 50 per cent capacity of their venues up to 1000 people and corporate events will be able to host up to 300 people as long as all attendees are seated.

NSW Arts Minister Don Harwin said it was a major step towards recovery for the arts sector, as well as allowing audiences to "enjoy experiences we have all missed so much during the pandemic".
