I certify that my child and/or the participant (such child or participant being the person identified as the "Student" in this registration form) is in proper physical condition to take part in dance or other activities which are the subject of this registration. I realize that there are certain risks inherent in the art of dancing or other activities which are the subject of this registration. As the legal parent or guardian, I hereby agree to assume the risk of any and all loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may arise from or relate to Student's participation in the classes and activities of The Dance Academy of North Jersey. For clarification purposes, the term "The Dance Academy of North Jersey" or "DANJ" as used in this registration form include the following organizations: The Dance Academy of North Jersey LLC and its owners, directors, instructors, employees, volunteers and representatives; any competition (e.g., Hall of Fame, American Dance Awards, Star Systems, On State New York, Starpower, etc.) or convention (e.g., NUVO, NYCDA, Jump, etc.) attended by the Student; or other facility that the Student attends in connection with his or her participation at The Dance Academy of North Jersey or any other organization named in this paragraph. I shall review and familiarize myself, and the Student, with all of the DANJ policies, rules and regulations applicable to me and the Student (including, without limitation, those policies, rules and regulations set forth from time to time on the DANJ website at www.danj.us or otherwise through emails, postings on the studio bulletin boards and other communications).
As the legal parent or guardian of the Student, I hereby release and hold harmless The Dance Academy of North Jersey, as well as their owners, operators, instructors, contractors and volunteers from and against any and all liability, claims, demands, and causes of action whatsoever, arising out of or related to any loss, misadventure, harm, cost, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by the Student while in or upon the premises or any premises under the control and supervision of DANJ, their owners and operators, or while en route to or from any of such premises.

I also understand that competition and recital participants must, at all times during the recital and competition, be respectful to other persons and property in all locations (e.g., dressing rooms, auditoriums, wings, hallways, etc.). Failure to maintain such decorum will result in immediate disqualification at the sole discretion of the Competition Organization, Recital Venue and/or DANJ representatives.
