I understand that participation in any instructional and/or recreational activities at Greater Austin Dance Academy is voluntary, and that all Programs and the use of the related facilities and equipment therein carries some physical risk.
I understand that if I or my minor child is injured or our property is damaged while participating in the Programs, that the injury or loss will not be covered or reimbursable by Greater Austin Dance Academy.
I agree to assume the risk of any and all illness or injury (minor, serious or catastrophic in nature, including claims and suits at law or in equity for any injury, fatal or otherwise) or damage (to person or property) resulting from my/our minor child's participation in all Programs, including the use of the facilities and/or equipment associated with the Program ("Damages").
I hereby waive all claims, on behalf of myself/ourselves and claims by my/our minor child (including claims which may be brought after attaining majority), now or in the future, for any such Damages and do hereby release and discharge Greater Austin Dance Academy and its respective officers, directors, instructors, agents, employees and assigns from any and all liability for any such Damages.
I assume full responsibility for all liability in connection with such Damages, and agree to indemnify Greater Austin Dance Academy
against any and all such claims and related costs, including claims by my/our minor child that may be brought after attaining majority.
I certify that the participant is in good health and that he/she has no physical limitations which would preclude him/her from the safe use of the facilities and equipment related to the Programs offered by Greater Austin Dance Academy and that I/we have sufficient health, accident and liability insurance to cover any Damages that may result as a result of my/our child participating in the Programs, and if I/we have no such insurance, I/we certify that I/we am/are capable of personally paying for any and all such Damages.
I understand that monthly tuition is never pro-rated but determined from an average of entire classes from Sept-May (32 weeks of classes, a week of stage rehearsals, a weekend performance, costume and recital fees are all averaged into the monthly tuition amounts. The only thing tuition does NOT cover is recital TICKETS. Recital tickets must be purchased at $10/ticket. However, in exchange EVERY student receives access to a digital download of ALL recital performances.). I realize fees and/or tuition is NOT refunded, and that it must be paid by the 8th of a month to avoid a $15 late fee (NO EXCEPTIONS). Tuition and/or registration fees cannot be refunded. SHOULD A LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION OCCUR, fees can be credited towards current session of classes ONLY. (For example, a cancelled camp fee can be credited to any other summer class or camp, but not towards fall classes.)
I understand that ALL accounts are automatically enrolled in AUTOPAY on the billing tab, in which case any balance on my account will automatically be charged to the card on file on the SECOND of each month (or for summer camps, one week before camp start date). If I do not wish to have my account paid with the card on file, it is my responsibility to make my payments BEFORE the second using another method (cash, check, etc)
I understand a $25 fee is assessed for any and all returned checks.
I understand my child must wear appropriate attire for the class they are registered for.
