I understand that participation in PCC programming requires a sustained, repetitive, vigorous physical activity, usually performed on a hard or lightly padded surface without protective footwear. It is also understood that dance instruction and rehearsals involve kinetic corrections that may include physically touching the Participant as part of regular classwork and rehearsals. I understand that participants engage in a broad range of quick movements, bending, twisting, running, leaping and lifting, which place extreme demands on the human body, including stress of joints and ligaments, repetitive impact, and occasional falls, slips and collisions with other participants and objects.
I also understand that PCC is not staffed to monitor and supervise the activities of its Participants in PCC programs at all times.
I also understand that there are inherent risks of serious personal injury involved in all of the above activities as well as in the general participation in PCC activities and events. I voluntarily assume and accept such risks of personal injury and illnesses arising from my/my child's attendance and participation in such activities and events.

Bullying, as defined by stopbullyingnow.hrsa.gov, is "aggressive behavior that is intentional, repeated over time, and involves an imbalance of power or strength". As an institution, PCC recognizes the harmful effects of bullying and is committed to preventing and addressing acts that occur within the studio. If incidents of bullying occur at PCC, the student, the student's parent, the teacher of the class when the incident occurred, and the Artistic Director will have a meeting to address the incident. If the student's behavior does not change, they will be suspended for the remainder of the season.
Each parent and student is expected to behave in a manner that is uplifting and reflects dignity and pride in the student body and PCC as a whole. In the studio, we must put aside differences and feelings towards one another outside of the studio and work together as a collective for the good of the individual and for the group. It is only when all students feel safe in class that our students can excel in the studio and on stage. Please join us in our efforts to ensure that each student feels seen, invested in, and included in our community.
I have read this policy and understand what is required of myself and my student(s).
I give consent for my student to sign the form below:
I, _________________ (student's name), understand what bullying is and how it can hurt my classmates. I pledge to speak up to an instructor, staff member, or parent when I see or hear it happening and to take responsibility for my own actions and behavior. I will watch out for and take care of my classmates. I will not participate in physical, verbal, emotional, or cyberbullying of my fellow dancers at PCC. I understand that if I do not, I will be suspended for the rest of the PCC season.
