Waiver of Liability
I understand that there are risks of physical injury associated with, arising out of, and inherent to dancing. These risks include the potential for slips and falls, sprains, strains, dislocations, soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, podiatric conditions, and other risks not specified here.
Understanding these risks and the potential for others not listed, I agree to personally accept and assume all of the risks present in my participation at Elin Dance Studio. My participation at Elin Dance Studio is entirely voluntary, and I choose to participate in spite of the risks.
Dance education sometimes requires hands-on instruction as well as verbal instruction. Instructors may correct dancers by touching their arms, legs, feet, hips, back and head to move them in the correct position. I acknowledge that this is a common standard in dance instruction and understand that it is my responsibility to communicate clearly with my teacher if any form of touch is unacceptable to me.
I understand that it is my responsibility to notify Elin Dance Studio staff of my existing medical conditions, illnesses and/or any other situations with my physical/mental health for the purpose of conducting classes in a safe and considerate environment. I agree and acknowledge that Elin Dance Studio will always prioritize my health first, and any classes that I decide to attend shall be my own responsibility. I shall immediately stop all activity and inform the instructor at the first moment that I feel unwell during any point in class.
I understand that Elin Dance Studio does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide financial or other assistance in the event of injury or illness, including but not limited to medical, health, or disability insurance or support.
I authorize Elin Dance Studio to obtain necessary medical or dental treatment, including first aid, ambulance transport, hospitalization, or such other care necessary for my health and welfare in an emergency. If my insurance does not cover emergency treatment that is deemed necessary and sought for me by Elin Dance Studio, I agree to be responsible for and pay all costs incurred on my behalf.
I release and discharge Elin Dance Studio from any claim which may arise on account of any first aid, treatment, or service rendered in connection with my participation in Elin Dance activities or with the decision by any representative or agent of Elin Dance Studio to consent to medical or dental treatment on my behalf in an emergency.
I understand that Elin Dance Studio does not carry or maintain health, medical, dental, or disability insurance coverage for any participant.

I understand that Elin Dance Studio may take photo and video recordings of me during my participation in Elin Dance Studio classes and activities. I convey to Elin Dance Studio full rights and interest in these recordings. I understand such recordings may be used in advertising or other published materials, physical or virtual.
If I do NOT consent to being photographed or video-recorded, I will make sure the Company staff is aware of my concerns and the reasons for them, I will be proactive about avoiding being photographed or recorded, and I will hold Elin Dance Studio harmless if a photo or video recording of me is released despite all precautions. I understand that this choice may limit my participation in performances that are routinely photographed and/or videotaped.

While a participant at Elin Dance Studio, I agree to abide by any rules, codes, and policies that are put in place by Elin Dance Studio before or at any time during my participation. If I have questions or concerns regarding any policies or decisions made by any representative of Elin Dance Studio, I agree to bring them promptly and specifically to the staff’s attention. In class, I will follow the Instructor’s instructions for safe and effective practice sessions.

If I am unable to attend the dance classes on time for any reason, I will have to cancel the class 24 hours in advance in the booking system and if I am a Trial Participant, I will have to inform of the cancellation 36 Hours prior to the class. Failing which, the session will be forfeited and no refund or makeup classes will be provided.
