A. Photo/Video Policy.

BBA performances and classes may at any time be photographed or taped and you hereby consent to the use of these materials to the discretion and ownership of BBA.

B. Code of Conduct. 

BBA students are expected to be on time, dressed appropriately for class. BBA at its sole discretion may dismiss any student for inappropriate and/or disrespectful behavior. BBA adheres to the following policy for bad behavior:

First offense - student will be asked to sit down in class and the parent will be notified.

C. Medical Emergencies.

In the event that any serious injury shall occur involving the student, I wish for BBA's supervisory personnel to take appropriate steps to notify me immediately, but if I am inaccessible for any reason, I authorize whatever medical attention is deemed appropriate for the student.

D. Insurance and Indemnity.

You agree to provide health and accident insurance for the student and agree to indemnify BBA, its Directors, Officers, employees, contractors, and agents against any claim, loss, liability, damage, cost or expense (including reasonable attorneys fees) arising out of relating to any student accident or health issue.

You, on behalf of yourself and the student, hereby agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless BBA, its Directors, Officers, employees, contractors and agents from any and all claim, loss, liability, damage, cost or expense (including reasonable attorneys fees) arising out of or relating to the enrollment, attendance, participation, withdrawal or expulsion from BBA programs of the child which is the subject of this Registration Form, including but not limited to participation in classes, performances, competitions, and other BBA activities and events, and anything resulting in any manner from the child's presence on BBA's property.

E. Assumption of Risk. 

I am not a minor and I hereby acknowledge and agree to the following on behalf of my student and myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, and assignees:

I may have the opportunity to participate in various activities, including dance classes, workshops, rehearsals, competitions and performances organized by BBA. I will receive information and instruction about dance and other related activities. I understand that by participating in any of these activities, I may be subjected to a variety of hazards and risks, foreseen or unforeseen, which may cause me to suffer property damage, personal injury or death ("Damages"). I know that these Damages can occur due to natural causes, the active or passive negligence of BBA or the negligent or intentional acts of third parties and/or fellow participants. I understand that I should, therefore, exercise extra care for my own person: I choose to participate in BBA activities, agree to pay the required costs, therefore, and voluntarily assume the risks of such Damages occurring while I am participating in BBA activities.

BBA may at times deliver participants to various third parties, who are not BBA employees, consultants or affiliates, who will conduct, supervise, guide or instruct participants in various activities. BBA assumes no duty to certify, monitor or verify the qualifications of any third parties involved in these activities. Any concerns regarding the qualifications of any third parties conducting these activities should be directed to the third parties. Participant agrees to release, indemnify and hold harmless BBA for liability for damages arising out of negligence of such third parties. I recognize that dance and all related activities require intense physical exertion that may be strenuous and may cause physical injury and therefore involve unique risks of Damages, and I am fully aware of the risks and hazards involved. I understand the nature of Marley floors, mobile floor bars and other dance equipment, and the consequences of wearing ballet slippers, pointe shoes, socks or bare feet and other related dance footwear, and I accept full responsibility for my own choice of footwear. I am satisfied with the condition of BBA's facilities and hereby assume all the risks inherent in the activities there. I voluntarily assume the risks of any and all damages I may incur at BBA.

I further agree that the above Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability is intended to be as broad as permitted under California law, and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that all other portions shall continue in full legal force and effect. I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE ABOVE AGREEMENT AND VOLUNTARILY AGREE TO SIGN THIS DOCUMENT. IF THE PARTICIPANT IS A MINOR, THIS DOCUMENT IS TO BE SIGNED BY THE MINOR'S LEGAL GUARDIAN. BY SIGNING BELOW THE MINOR'S LEGAL GUARDIAN INDICATES THAT HE OR SHE UNDERSTANDS THAT "I" ABOVE REFERS TO BOTH HIM OR HER AND THE MINOR. If BBA is the prevailing party in any legal proceeding either related to or brought under these terms and conditions, it shall be entitled to recover from the parents all costs from such proceeding and reasonable attorneys fees. California law shall govern any disputes between the parties.

F. Miscellaneous. 

This "Registration Form" is personal to you, and may not be assigned without written consent of BBA. This Registration Form may only be amended by a written agreement signed by both parties. If a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction holds any term of this Registration Form invalid or unenforceable, such term will be reduced or otherwise modified by such court or arbitrator to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable. If such term cannot be so modified, it will be severed and the remaining terms of this Registration Form will be interpreted in such ways as to give maximum validity and enforceability to this Registration Form. Any waiver of the provisions of this Registration Form or of a party's rights or remedies under this Registration Form must be in writing to be effective. Failure, neglect, or delay by a party to enforce the provisions of this Registration Form or its rights or remedies at any time, will not be construed as a waiver of such party's rights under this Registration Form and will not in any way affect the validity of the whole or any part of this Registration Form or prejudice such party's right to take subsequent action. Unless agreed to in writing, the waiver by a party of any breach, violation, or default of a provision of this Registration Form will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent breach, violation, or default of that or of any other provision.

G. Effectiveness. 

This Registration Form shall become effective only upon BBA's written acceptance, which shall be acknowledged by BBA's written Acceptance and Confirmation email.
