LIABILITY RELEASE, HOLD HARMLESS, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK WAIVER
A. RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND HOLD HARMLESS:
The undersigned member and/or their legal parent(s)/guardian(s) indemnifies and holds harmless Creation Dance Studio, LLC (“Creation Dance Studio” or “CDS”) and its agents, officers, volunteers, instructors, and staff from any liability whatsoever for any injuries, harm, or loss of property while participating in dance classes, tumbling classes, cheer classes, Adaptive Dance classes, dance camps, rehearsals, online classes, private lessons, Pilates, fitness classes, studio events, performances, exercise/movement of any kind, or any other activities at or involved with CDS and its facilities, volunteers, or staff.
In consideration of my participation, I hereby release and covenant not-to-sue CDS, its owners or any of its staff, agents, volunteers, and members from any and all present and future claims resulting from ordinary negligence on the part of CDS or others listed for property damage or loss, personal injury, or wrongful death arising from a result of my child or myself engaging in or receiving instruction in dance, tumbling, cheer, Adaptive Dance, dance camps, Pilates, exercise, online classes, performances, studio events, or any other activity or any activity incidental thereto, wherever, whenever, or however the same may occur. I hereby voluntarily waive any and all claims resulting from ordinary negligence, both present and future, that may be made by me, my family, estate, heirs, successors, or assigns.
B. ASSUMPTION OF RISK:
Further, I am aware that dancing, tumbling, cheer, Adaptive Dance, Pilates, dance camps, and aerobic activities are vigorous sporting activities involving lifts and rotations, in a unique environment and as such they pose risk of injury. I understand that dance, Adaptive Dance, tumbling, cheer, movement, dance camps, performances, studio events and activities, general physical activity, and related activities always involve certain risk, including but not limited to, death, concussion, serious neck injury and spinal injuries resulting in complete or partial paralysis, brain damage and serious injury to virtually all bones, joints, muscles, and internal organs, and that the safety equipment and apparatus provided for my protection, including the active participation of instructors or teachers who will spot and assist in the performance of certain skills may be inadequate to prevent serious injury. I understand that participation in dance, Adaptive Dance, tumbling, cheer, dance camps, Pilates, performances, movement, exercise, online classes of any kind, and related activities incidental to that participation, including for example: moving from class to class, lingering in the hallway area, conditioning, and stretching are all activities that may leave me vulnerable to the reckless actions of other participants who may not have complete control of their actions or who may not see other students on the floor or in the surrounding area.
Having read and understood the foregoing paragraph, I am voluntarily participating in this activity with knowledge of the risks involved. I hereby agree to accept any and all inherent risks of property damage or loss, personal injury, or death. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless CDS and all others listed, for any and all claims arising as a result of participation by my child (or child that I am a legal guardian of) or myself in
receiving instruction at CDS, in activities at CDS or any other activities incidental thereto, whenever, wherever, or however the same may occur.
C. DOCTOR ADVICE RECOMMENDED:
We suggest you consult your physician prior to your/your child's participation.
D. PERMISSION TO AUTHORIZE EMERGENCY TREATMENT:
I give permission for CDS staff to authorize Emergency Medical Treatment for my child (or child that I am legal guardian of) or myself (if I am unable to communicate my wishes) in the event that they find it necessary.
E. CDS HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ARRIVAL OR DEPARTURE:
I also understand that the safety of my child (or child that I am a legal guardian of) both before and after class is my responsibility as their parent/guardian. CDS asks that parents/guardians escort their child into the studio before class and that they pick them up at the studio promptly after class ends. If my child (or child that I am a legal guardian of) arrives at the studio alone or leaves the studio alone I will not hold CDS, their instructors, staff, or volunteers liable for any injuries or incidents that may occur. The staff and instructors at CDS are not responsible and will not be held liable for the safety of my child when/if they leave the premises of CDS without a parent or guardian.
F. BROAD RELEASE OF LIABILITY, HOLD HARMLESS, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK:
I understand that this liability release, hold harmless, and assumption of risk waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State of Washington and agree that if any portion is held invalid, the remainder of the waiver will continue in full legal force and affect. I further agree that the venue for any legal proceedings will be held within the State of Washington.

Code of Conduct:
At CDS, we expect that parents, family members, and students will treat our faculty and staff, other families, and our facility with the utmost respect. CDS values teamwork, community, encouragement, and creating a safe place for every dancer, both physically and emotionally. Gossiping and bullying are strictly forbidden both in class and online. If this code of conduct is broken, a meeting with both will be set up with the director immediately.
Financial Enrollment/Registration Fee:
-There is an annual $40 registration fee due at the time of School Year Session enrollment. This registration fee is non-refundable.
-Please note that ALL registration must be completed online.
-Enrollment in Autopay is required for all students who are enrolled in the School Year Session.
-Tuition is split into 10 monthly installments that are automatically charged to the credit card on file on the 1st business day of each month.
-There are no credits or refunds for missed classes. It is expected that tuition will be paid through the end of the session, without exception, regardless of vacation, sick days, or other conflicts.
-Tuition amounts will fluctuate depending on the actual amount of class days in each moth. Tuition is prorated for holidays or no class days.
-Once a student is enrolled in a class, it is expected that they will complete the entire School Year Session (Sept-June).
-There is an automatic $20 late fee for all accounts with an outstanding balance 10 days after tuition is posted.
-Students who have an outstanding balance for more than 30 days cannot attend their class(es) until the outstanding balance has been paid. Once the balance is paid, students may return to class.
All account balances unpaid for a period of 90 days/three months will be sent to collections.
-Dancers should arrive in full dance attire 5 minutes prior to their scheduled class time. Missing “warm-ups” due to tardiness may cause injury and is disruptive to the class.
-If a dancer is 15 minutes late for class without prior notice, they may be asked to observe class or warmup separately before joining class. This is to protect your dancer from potential injury due to missing warmup.
-Attending class on a regular basis is extremely important for all students and their progress as dancers.
-5 or more absences during rehearsal season for our Spring Recital (January-June) may result in dancers not being able to participate in the Spring Showcase.
The dress code for each class can be found on the Creation Dance Studio website and must be followed. If a dancer does not have their hair pulled back away from their face, correct shoes, and/or correct attire, they may be asked to observe class. Jewelry, watches, etc. are not allowed in class for dancer safety.
All dancers must have their hair pulled back, away from the face and off of the neck. Ballet students MUST have their hair in a bun. A bun, ponytail, or braid is okay for all other classes.
-Once a student is enrolled in a class, we expect that they will complete the entire session. We will continue to hold a place for your student in the class and charge monthly tuition installments until an email from the parent/guardian has been received with the specific drop date listed.
-Important: Please note that tuition will NOT be prorated, credited, or partially refunded if a student withdraws from a class mid-month. There is no refund or credit for tuition that has been previously paid and processed prior to the drop date. There is no refund or credit for tuition due, or paid, in the month that the class is dropped.
If you or your student are unable to attend class, please enter the absence through your portal account or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a make up class. Make up classes MUST be scheduled within one month of the missed class. Make up classes should be same type and same level of class that is missed, with the exception of classes that are not offered more than once a week (ex: If a jazz class is missed, student must make up a jazz class). If class is not made-up within one month of their absence, the make-up class opportunity does not extend further.
Recital & Costumes:
-Creation Dance Studio has an annual end of the year recital in June.
-Please notify CDS no later than December 1st if your student will not be performing in the recital.
-Please note that dancers performing in the recital will be required to buy a costume for each class. Costumes range between $60-$85 per costume, per class.
-Costume fees are final and non-refundable.
-Recital tickets, photos, and videos, are non-refundable.
Placements are based on ability, age, and what is best for each individual student as they grow and progress as dancers. Please note that repeating a level for at least two years is standard and should be expected. Students may be asked to repeat a level in order to refine their skills and technique before moving up to a higher level. Students may also be asked to move into a higher level if they need an increase in challenge. We appreciate your cooperation, understanding, and trust that our faculty are extremely knowledgable and have your dancer's best interest in mind when placement decisions are made.
There must be at least 3 dancers signed up for a class in order for it to run during the School Year Session. If a class does not have at least 3 dancers, we will either combine two classes together or recommend a different class for your dancer.
NO REFUNDS. Tuition is non-transferable and non-refundable.
Private lessons are to be paid in full at time of the lesson. If you schedule a private lesson and fail to attend, are late, or fail to notify the instructor at least four hours prior to your scheduled time, you will be charged the hourly rate with no exceptions.
If a student enrolls in a class in the middle of the month, tuition will be pro-rated for the first month based on the date that the student enrolls.
If a student must stop dancing for medical reasons, a written note from the parent/legal guardian and medical doctor must be submitted explaining the nature of the medical condition. Credit and tuition adjustments will be provided upon review of CDS.
Cancellation of class:
If Creation Dance Studio cancels a class, and no other class is substituted or provided as a make up option, a credit will be added for the tuition that has already been paid and processed. Credits must be used for tuition, however, if no other class is available, options for credit memo use will be discussed with director.
Declined Auto pay Credit Card or ACH:
If your credit card or ACH account is declined, you will be charged a $35 processing fee if not updated by the 10th day of the current month.
Class Transfer Policy:
All class transfers must be approved by both the instructor of the class and the director of the studio. All transfers will take at least 1-week for approval and the student must wait for approval prior to transferring into the new class.
Cancelled classes (due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances):
Creation Dance Studio follows the Mercer Island School District (MISD) for emergency and severe weather closures. On days that the MISD has cancelled school, dance classes will also be cancelled for the safety of CDS families & staff members. If school has been cancelled but it appears safe for students and faculty to drive to the studio later in the day, classes may be held. On late start days and non-school days (Saturdays & Sundays), we will assess if we can safely hold classes. All families impacted will receive a text and an email if class(es) will be cancelled. There will also be an update posted on the CDS portal and a post on social media (Facebook and Instagram).
We do not offer refunds or credits for classes that are cancelled due to weather or emergency closures. We do offer make up classes, and we encourage all students who have missed a class due to winter weather to attend a make up class. Please click HERE for more information about make up classes and email email@example.com to set up a make up class for your dancer.
Zoom classes may be offered for intermediate and intermediate/advanced classes only. If your dancer is in a class that will be offered via Zoom, an email will be sent out as soon as possible with instructions regarding accessing your dancer's Zoom class.
