In the event that my dancer participates in Innovative Dance, INC YouTube classes or virtual dance classes, I release and hold harmless Innovative Dance, INC its owners and operators from any and all liability, claims, demands, and causes of action whatsoever, arising out of or related to any illness, loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by the participant and/or the undersigned, while participating in our online, live classes or prerecorded videos.
Dance, in general is a very physical art form. Physical touching and pulling/pushing is inevitable in teaching a student correct placement. It is hereby understood that my dancer and family recognize this and hold no teacher of Innovative Dance, INC accountable to any such allegations or issues thereof. Regardless of social distancing recommendations, spotting participants during acrobatics tricks in any class is a requirement for student safety and necessary to perform said skills. This is valid at all times that my family is enrolled. If any student does not wish to be physically corrected, the teacher should be informed on the first day of class.
Procedures will be taken to keep the dance studio clean and sanitized. It is the responsibility of the participants to not attend classes if they are experiencing symptoms of any illness including but not limited to; fever, diarrhea, vomiting or eye infections.
I understand that the studio has photogenic rights, and throughout my enrollment, photos and videos may be taken and used for publicity purposes.
