I (hereinafter the word "I" shall mean to include the student/participant and any person executing this Waiver as a parent or legal guardian of the student/participant who may be waiving their rights on behalf of themselves and the student/participant) have voluntarily decided to participate in activities and events at, and use the facilities of, Next Step Broadway LLC, located at 233 9th St. Jersey City, NJ 07302. I am voluntarily participating with the knowledge of the numerous risks and dangers involved, including, but not limited to: physical exertion for which I may not be prepared; hitting walls or falling down; breakdown of equipment, whether rented or owned; accident or illness; the risk of negligence by myself or others, including Next Step Broadway LLC; and the potential for serious injury, including permanent paralysis or death. I will follow all written and verbal rules of safety presented to me by Next Step Broadway LLC. I am responsible for my own welfare and accept any and all risks of unanticipated or anticipated events, illness, injury, emotional or physical trauma or death. I hereby release, indemnify and hold harmless Next Step Broadway LLC, its owners, members, advisors, and all employees and agents of these parties from all liabilities, suits, claims and/or demands of any kind or nature, legal or financial, whether caused in any way by the negligence or not, arising from the participation in or observation of any Next Step Broadway LLC activity for injuries to any person or property, whether on or off the premises. I, on behalf of myself and the student/participant named below do hereby voluntarily participate in any and all Next Step Broadway LLC activities and that the student/participant and I understand that certain risks are inherent to and from participation and involvement with Next Step Broadway LLC and in its various formal and informal activities. These activities include but are not limited to dance and gymnastics. Next Step Broadway LLC is not responsible for any lost or stolen property, at any time. Anyone found to be violating any of the rules, codes of conduct, or found to be disruptive to either another individual or group may be asked to leave the premises or off-site location at any time and be refused reentrance without any full or partial refund.
In consideration for being allowed to participate in any way in the dance activities, which are understood, known and acknowledged to be physically strenuous and possibly dangerous activities, as well as to take part in training, practicing, competitions, demonstrations, and all related events and activities, I, the undersigned, on behalf of the student/participant acknowledge, appreciate and agree that I have consulted with a physician prior to entering into such activity and that:
I and the student/participant voluntarily assume full responsibility for any and all risk of bodily injury, death or property damage due to the negligence of Next Step Broadway LLC or otherwise, while in or on the premises, owned or controlled by Next Step Broadway LLC, and/or while competing, playing, practicing, officiating in, or working in any manner for the purpose of participating in the activities, or watching others on the premises, or playing any games on the premises; and the risk of injury from the activities involved is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist. As the parent/legal guardian of the student/participant named below, I request and authorize that in my absence the student/participant named below be admitted to any hospital or medical facility for diagnosis and treatment. I request and authorize physicians, dentists, and staff, duly licensed as Doctors of Medicine/Osteopathy or Doctors of Dentistry or other such licensed technicians or nurses, to perform any diagnostic procedures, treatment procedures, operative procedures and x-ray treatment of the student/participant named below. I have not been given any guarantee as to the results of examination or treatment. I hereby authorize Next Step Broadway LLC, its owners, members, Board of Directors, and all employees and agents of these parties to act for the student/participant named below according to their best judgment in providing or arranging for emergency care in any emergency circumstance requiring medical attention. I authorize the hospital, medical or care facility to dispose of any specimen or tissue during the course of any diagnosis, treatment or other normal and customary procedures.
THE UNDERSIGNED further expressly agrees that the foregoing RELEASE, WAIVER AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of New Jersey and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full force and effect.
I and the student/participant hereby understand and are fully aware that the student/participant named below may be participating in Next Step Broadway LLC activities in which I and/or the student/participant named below may be photographed or videotaped (the Property) from time to time. I hereby irrevocably grant to Next Step Broadway LLC perpetually, exclusively, and for all media throughout the world (including print, non theatrical, home video, CD-ROM, internet and any other electronic medium presently in existence or invented in the future), the right to use and incorporate (alone or together with other materials), in whole or in part, photographs, sound bites or video footage taken as a result of participation in Next Step Broadway LLC activities. I hereby agree that I will not bring or consent to others bringing claim or action against Next Step Broadway LLC on the grounds that anything contained in the Property, or in the advertising and publicity used in connection herewith, is defamatory, reflects adversely on me or the student/participant named below, violates any other right whatsoever, including, without limitation, rights of privacy and publicity. I hereby release Next Step Broadway LLC, its owners, members, and all employees and agents of these parties from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of actions, suits, costs, expenses, liabilities, and damages whatsoever that I may hereafter have against Next Step Broadway LLC in connection with the Property.
