On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Lela Belles Studio of Dance, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Lela Belles Studio of Dance, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Lela Belles Studio of Dance program, class, workshop or event.
