RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY: I/we acknowledge and agree on behalf of ourselves, and if the student registering is a minor, on behalf of such minor student (I/we and such a student, if a minor, are hereafter referred to collectively as the "Student") that Student's use of JCK Movement, LLC , DBA Academy of Dance Westlake Village ("Studio") studio facilities, services, equipment, or premises, involves risks of injury to persons and property, including those described below, and I/we and Student assumes full responsibility for such risks. In consideration of being allowed to enter the Studio's facilities and/or to participate in any related Studio events, for any purpose, whether or not at the Studio's facilities, including, but not limited to, instruction, observation, use of facilities, services, or equipment, or participation in any way, Student agrees to the following: Student hereby releases and holds Studio, its managers, members, officers, contractors, employees, and agents ("Studio Parties") harmless from all liability to Student and Student's personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin for any loss and/or damage, and waives any claim or demands therefore, on account of injury to Student's person or property, including injury leading to the death of Student, whether caused by the active or passive negligence or otherwise of Studio Parties or anyone else, while Student is in, upon, or about Studio's facilities or participating in any way in any Studio event whether or not at the Studio's facilities. Student also hereby agrees to indemnify Studio Parties from any loss, liability, damage, or cost Studio Parties may incur due to the presence of Student in, upon, or about Studio's facilities or observation or participation in any Studio activity whether caused by the active or passive negligence or otherwise of Studio Parties or anyone else. Student represents (a) that Student is in good physical condition and has no disability, illness, or other condition that could prevent Student from dancing and/or exercising without injury or impairment of health, and (b) that Student has consulted a physician concerning a dance and/or exercise program that will not risk injury to Student or impairment of Student's health. Such risk of injury includes (but is not limited to): injuries arising from dance and/or exercise activities at the Studio's facilities or at Studio related events; injuries or medical disorders arising from exercising such as heart attacks, strokes, heat stress, sprains, broken bones, and torn muscles and ligaments, among others; and accidental injuries occurring anywhere in Studio's facilities. Student further expressly agrees that foregoing release, waiver and agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full force and effect. Student acknowledges that Student will be physically touched from time to time during their dance training and instruction and that Student will not hold the Studio Parties liable for such physical touching. In addition, the Studio Parties will not be held liable for and will be held harmless from any and all liabilities, losses, injuries, damages, or expenses related to the Student's dance training at the Studio. Student has read this release and waiver of liability and indemnity clause, and agrees that no oral representations, statements, or inducements apart from this foregoing agreement have been made.
I hereby declare my dancer to be in good physical and mental health to participate in the classes I have approved and registered my dancer in and have listed any/all physical/mental conditions, problems, or restrictions. In the event of a medical emergency I give permission to ADWV, its owners, faculty, staff, and/or operators, to seek medical treatment for my child in the event they are not able to reach a parent or guardian.
TUITION POLICIES: I/we the undersigned parent(s) or guardian(s), agree to timely pay the tuition fees NO LATER THAN the 1st of each month throughout the 2017 - 2018 dance session ending June 23rd, 2018. If my account is not paid in full by the 6th of the month and I do not provide the front desk with another form of payment, I understand that ADWV will charge my card on file. I understand that I can choose whichever payment method (cash, check, credit card) I am most comfortable with but that a credit card is required at the time of registration in order to avoid late tuition. Otherwise, ADWV will not charge my card on file unless I request to use it as my main form of payment. However, I understand that ADWV will charge the card on file if I do not provide them with another form of payment before tuition is considered late. If my credit card is declined for any reason, I understand that a $20 late fee will be added to my account if I do not provide ADWV with another form of payment within 48 hours of being notified that the card was declined and that an additional $20 late fee will be added every week until my account is paid in full. If there is still a balance on my account after 2 months of non-payment, I understand that my dancer will not be permitted to attend class and ADWV will be forced to contact a third party to help collect my payment. A $25 service charge will also be added to any returned checks to cover processing charges. If there are less than 5 students enrolled in a class, ADWV reserves the right to cancel the class. In the event that this happens, ADWV will attempt to place my dancer in another suitable class. If another class cannot be found, ADWV will refund me for the hours the cancelled class did not meet and I will not be responsible for tuition for that cancelled class. If only 1 dancer shows up for a specific class, that class will be shortened to a 30 minute private for that week (valued at $50). I understand that ADWV does not send out statements, my cancelled check is my receipt, but a receipt for cash payments is available upon request.
HOLIDAY CLOSINGS & TUITION: Tuition is paid monthly from September thru June and is calculated based on the total number of classes throughout our 10-month season. Each class will meet a total of 40 times with the Dress Rehearsal and Annual Performance counting as 4 of those hours. In reality, your dancer will be spending far more than 4 hours with us during Performance Week; however, we round down. In other words, regardless of studio closings for holidays or short months all classes meet a total of 36 times throughout the year plus our Performance Week, which means that tuition remains the same year-round. Regardless of your participation in the Annual Performance, June tuition will be your last tuition payment for this session and will not be pro-rated if you choose not to participate in the Annual Performance.
MAKE UP POLICY: Whether your dancer attends class or not, you are still responsible for tuition. There are NO refunds or credits for missed classes. If your dancer misses a class, you may choose any age/level appropriate class of the same length on our schedule to be used as a makeup class within 90 days of the missed class. All missed classes must be made up during the 2017 - 2018 Fall/Spring dance session and any/all missed hours do NOT carry over to future dance sessions and will expire after June 23rd, 2018. Please note that all classes performing in the Annual Performance will no longer be eligible as a possible make-up class starting Monday, May 21st so that those classes may work on their performance pieces.
TRIAL CLASSES: All new ADWV students are eligible to take a trial class for FREE! To do so, a parent or guardian must fill out the first and last pages of this registration form (the contact information page and the waiver) and bring it with you to whichever hour-long, age-appropriate class you choose on our schedule. If the class you would like to try is longer than an hour, there will be a small fee ($10 for 1.5hrs, $15 for 2 hrs, $20 for 3 hrs) that will be taken off of your first month's tuition if you register for that class. Please note that trial classes do not apply to our Summer Classes, Camps, or Intensives. If you would like to try multiple classes, your first hour will be free but you will be charged a drop-in rate for each additional hourly class at $20 per class. Please note that trial classes do not apply to existing ADWV students.
REGISTRATION FEE: An annual registration fee of $35 is due at the time of registration for each dancer registering for our Fall/Spring 2017 - 2018 session. If more than one child from your family is registering for classes, your second child's registration fee will be discounted to $25, your third child's registration fee will be $15, and your fourth (or more) child will not have to pay a registration fee.
ANNUAL PERFORMANCE PARTICIPATION & POLICIES: Our 2018 Dress Rehearsals will be held Wednesday, June 20th through Friday, June 22nd and our Annual Performances will be held on Friday, June 22nd and Saturday, June 23rd, all at the Agoura Performing Arts Education Center. Each class will be given a specific call-time and pick-up time for Dress Rehearsal on either Wednesday, Thursday, OR Friday and assigned to either the Friday evening, Saturday matinee, or Saturday evening show. Please note that for older dancers, there is a possibility that dancers may be asked to perform in more than one show. Please reserve ALL days from June 20th - June 23rd, 2018 to avoid any conflicts and to make sure your dancer will be able to participate. Full details and schedules will be released as we get closer to the performance season. If your dancer is unable to participate in the Annual Performance, you must notify the front desk in writing no later than January 31st, 2018. Participation in our Annual Performance is expected but not required. Please note that the vast majority, if not all, of your dancer's class will be participating in the Annual Performance and will be learning choreography starting in late February/early March. Dancers participating in our Annual Performance will be responsible for purchasing a costume for each class at $80 per costume due in November/December of 2017. ADWV does not charge any additional performance fees.
ANNUAL PERFORMANCE DETAILS:
When: Friday, June 22nd @ 6:00pm & Saturday, June 23rd @ 1:00pm & 6:00pm
Where: Agoura Performing Arts Education Center at Agoura High School
28545 W. Driver Avenue. Agoura Hills, CA
COSTUME PAYMENTS & POLICIES: Costumes for the Annual Performance are $85 each with 1 costume per class regardless of how many styles/pieces per class. In other words, dancers in the Ballet & Tap Combo will only have to purchase ONE costume. Costume Order Forms will be available at the front desk in October of 2017 and all completed forms must be turned in NO LATER THAN Wednesday, December 20th. Any Costume Order Forms received after this date will be subject to a $20 rush fee. Once a costume has been ordered, it cannot be returned and there will be no refunds regardless of whether or not there is a change in your registration status. Once the costume has been received, tried on, and taken home, any/all sizing issues, missing pieces, damages, or errors must be reported to the front desk within 48 hours so that we may attempt to remedy the issue. If you discover a costume issue after the 48 hours, Academy of Dance Westlake Village will try and replace the missing/damaged items at the customer's expense.
