Assumption of the Risk and
Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization.
COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result,
federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have,
in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.
Dance Et Cetera (“the Studio”) has put preventative measures in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however,
the Studio cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. All Studio
instructors, employees, agents and representatives will act within the safe distancing guidelines which are currently in
place as set out by state and local government officials. You and your child(ren) are responsible for maintaining a
safe distance from other Studio participants and their families.
Further, attending the Studio could increase your and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, you acknowledge that your child(ren) attending or participating in any Studio classes or
activities is strictly optional and not required, and that attending Studio classes or activities could increase your and
your child(ren’s risk of contracting COVID-19. Due to the contagious nature of COVID-19 you assume the risks and
accept sole responsibility for any injury to your child(ren) or yourself (including, but not limited to, personal injury,
disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that you or your child(ren) may
experience or incur in connection with your child(ren)’s attendance at the Studio or participation in Studio
programming (“Claims”). Further, you understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the
Studio may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of including, but not limited to, Studio owner(s),
employees, volunteers, other participants and their families whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or
after participation in any Studio program. On behalf of yourself and your child(ren), you hereby release, covenant not
to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Studio, its employees, agents, representatives and other participants, from
all Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating
Should the Studio need to close due to COVID-19 affecting the local community, tuition will
still be due as usual. Virtual classes will be made available daily. Should you decide to drop or
quit your commitment to classes and tuition, you must follow the proper drop protocol, as listed in
the registration packet or you will continue to be billed for your child(ren)’s tuition.
Further, by signing this agreement you give authorization to Studio representatives to obtain medical assistance for
your child(ren) if there is a medical emergency or medical attention is required in the event you are not available. You
assume all financial responsibility for any medical treatment or injuries sustained by your child(ren) while attending
