By signing this Release, Waiver & Assumption of Risk, (the 'Release') I agree that Step 2 This Dance & Performing Arts Dance Studio shall not be responsible for any injury suffered by the student. The Release extends to Step 2 This Dance & Performing Arts Dance Studio, and its owners, officers, agents, instructors and employees (all of which are collectively referred to herein as 'studio').

I understand that dance and tumbling activities as conducted and taught at the studio have inherent risks of injury. These risks include muscle pain and pulls, broken bones, ankle injuries and other personal injury. I recognize that the student is exposing himself/herself to such risks when undertaking dance activities. I understand that these risks cannot be fully eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. The student and I assume and accept all risks of injury or damages resulting from such dance/tumbling activities. The student's participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and the student elects to participate, and I join in the election, in spite of the risks.
I also agree that the studio, including its owners, officials, agents, instructors and employees, is not responsible for any property loss or damage suffered by the student or any guests or parents of the student that results upon entry into or presence in the studio or its surrounding property.

I understand the terms of this Release and have had the opportunity to consider and discuss it with such individuals and advisors as I deem appropriate. By Agreeing to this Release, I confirm that I have read the Release in full, that I understand its terms, and that I agree with those terms. I further confirm that by signing this Release, I acknowledge that if the student is hurt during participation in this activity, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right and any right of the student to maintain a lawsuit against the studio on the basis of any claim which is released hereby. In consideration of the student's being permitted by the studio or participate in the activities provided by the studio, I further agree to hold harmless and indemnify the studio from any and all claims which are brought by or on behalf of any student who is a minor and which are in any way connected with the activities performed at the studio by any such minor student.
