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.


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