I, the undersigned, represent, acknowledge and accept that participation in the activities for which the Participant is registered includes
strenuous physical activity and involves possible risks of serious injury (including paralysis or death) with or without the negligence of others. Participant, on his/her behalf, and the parent/legal guardian, on behalf of Minor, as well as on their own behalf, unequivocally agree to incur and assume such risks as a condition to participation in the activities for which the Participant is registered. The undersigned represent that the Participant is healthy and has no physical or mental condition that would impair Participant's ability to fully and safely participate in the intended activities.
I, Participant (and the Minor Participant's parent/legal guardian on behalf of Minor and on their own behalf) hereby waive all claims (past,
present or future), release and discharge, covenant not to sue, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Level Ground, LLC (DBA The Next Step Dance Studio), as well as its officers, employees and agents (hereinafter collectively "Releasees") from any and all liability, loss, cost, expense, claims, demands, actions, judgments and executions which the undersign experienced, is experiencing, or may experience in the future, for personal injuries, known or unknown, and damage to property (real or personal) in any way caused by, related to, or arising out of, directly or indirectly, the activity for which Participant is registered or permitted to engage.
I, the undersigned, represent, acknowledge and accept that participation in the activities for which the Participant is registered includes, in the regular course of instruction, the necessity for the instructor to adjust and correct the Participant's body form and position to proper placement. This includes correction of the head, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, torso, hips, legs and feet. I, Participant (and the Minor Participant's parent/legal guardian on behalf of Minor and on their own behalf) fully acknowledge that I am aware that the instructor may, at some times, appropriately correct and aid my Participant's body position and freely agree to allow such action to take place. I agree to release and hold harmless all Releasees from any litigation expenses, attorney fees, loss, liability, damages or cost of any Releasee may incur in result of any such claim against the instructor.
In the event of illness or injury, I authorize The Next Step Dance Studio to obtain necessary medical treatment for Participant and hereby, in my own behalf of the Participant, release and hold harmless all Releasees. The undersigned represents and agrees that this waiver and release is binding not only on the undersigned, but also upon their heirs, representatives, administrators, executors and assigns. The release covers every possible injury or accident of every sort and nature, whether related to the permitted activity, the equipment, the condition of the premises, or otherwise and regardless of whether due in whole or in part to the negligence of a Releasee or other Participant. Furthermore, if anyone (Participant, Minor's parent/legal guardian or anyone on behalf of Participant or parent/legal guardian) makes a claim against any of the Releasees despite their release, then the undersigned agree to indemnify and hold harmless each of the Releasees from any litigation expenses, attorney fees, loss, liability, damages or cost of any Releasee may incur in result of any such claim.
I, the undersigned, represent, acknowledge and accept that there are no refunds on any fees, for any reason, unless initiated by The Next Step Dance Studio. I also understand that all checks returned from financial institutions will incur a $25.00 fee. I accept that there will be late fees for payments made after due dates and I agree to pay them in full. I understand that if my credit card is stored in the parent portal, that credit card will be used by the NSDS administrative team to automatically charge fees on announced due dates. Otherwise, payment may be made by check or cash. I agree to take responsibility to read through the weekly email newsletter so that I do not miss payment due dates and other important announcements.
