In consideration of being allowed to enter the Studio’s facilities and/or to participate in any related Studio events, for any purpose, whether or not at the Studio’s facilities, including, but not limited to, instruction, observation, use of facilities, services, or equipment, or participation in any way, Student agrees to the following: Student hereby releases and holds Studio, its managers, members, officers, contractors, employees, and agents (“Studio Parties”) harmless from all liability to Student and Student’s personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin for any loss and/or damage, and waives any claim or demands therefore, on account of injury to Student’s person or property, including injury leading to the death of Student, whether caused by the active or passive negligence or otherwise of Studio Parties or anyone else, while Student is in, upon, or about Studio’s facilities or participating in any way in any Studio event whether or not at the Studio’s facilities. Student also hereby agrees to indemnify Studio Parties from any loss, liability, damage, or cost Studio Parties may incur due to the presence of Student in, upon, or about Studio’s facilities or observation or participation in any Studio activity whether caused by the active or passive negligence or otherwise of Studio Parties or anyone else.
