All photography/video is the property of Hill Dance Academy Theatre and may be used beyond the 2023-2024 season.
Hill Dance Academy Theatre shall have the right to exercise such rights with my appearance, likeness, and form alone, or with other materials, including, but not limited to, text, data, images, photographs, illustrations, animation, graphics, and video or audio segments of any nature. The rights granted to Hill Dance Academy Theatre hereunder are worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, and assignable. I hereby waive all rights and release Hill Dance Academy Theatre and its Board of Directors, officers, employees, agents, and independent contractors from, and shall neither sue nor bring any proceeding against any such parties for, any liability, loss, demands, claims, damages or causes of action, whether now known or unknown, for defamation, invasion of right to privacy, publicity or personality or any similar matter, or based upon or relating to the use and exploitation of my appearance, likeness and form.
I, on behalf of myself and Student, and for Student’s, executors, and administrators, do hereby exempt, release, and forever discharge and not sue, Hill Dance Academy Theatre (HDAT) and its directors, officers, agents, employees, and instructors, hereby waive any and all claims which may occur from any cause whatsoever during or arising from Student’s participation at Hill Dance Academy Theatre (HDAT) including any injury to Student or Student’s guests or damage to Student’s property or Student’s guests’ property.

I understand some of the activities engaged in at the Academy are physically strenuous and only students who are medically able to participate should do so. Regardless of the cause, the student (or parents or guardian) assumes full responsibility for all risks of accident and personal injury that may result from participation in Academy activities. The Academy assumes no responsibility or liability with respect to the student's injuries which are sustained as the result of deficiencies in the student's physical health. Hill Dance Academy Theatre Faculty and Staff reserves the right to dismiss or otherwise discipline any person whose behavior is not acceptable or endangers the safety of themselves or others. Unacceptable behavior includes verbal harassment, physical assault or sexual abuse, and the use or possession of alcohol. The use, purchase or sale of any illegal substances at the Academy is strictly forbidden and will not be tolerated. If anyone is involved in any activity associated with these substances or devices, the appropriate law enforcement agency will be contacted to deal with the situation. No refunds will be made in the event of such disciplinary action. Costs incurred by the Hill Dance Academy Theatre in a disciplinary action will be the responsibility of the participant, Parent or Guardian.
In Dance training, a faculty may put their hands on a student to correct the student’s posture, the physical line, the position of the student’s body or part of her/his body, or to help a student hold a position. Hill Dance Academy Theatre doesn’t tolerate any inappropriate or harmful faculty-student contact. By participating in Hill Dance Academy Theatre activities and programs, I acknowledge that Hill Dance Academy Theatre faculty/guest artists may correct students with physical contact.
I hereby release and agree to hold Hill Dance Academy Theatre harmless from, and waive on behalf of myself, my heirs, and any personal representatives any and all causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, expenses and compensation for damage or loss to myself and/or property that may be caused by any act, or failure to act of the dance academy, or that may otherwise arise in any way in connection with any services received from Hill Dance Academy Theatre. I understand that this release discharges Hill Dance Academy Theatre from any liability or claim that I, my heirs, or any personal representatives may have against the dance academy with respect to any bodily injury, illness, death, medical treatment, or property damage that may arise from, or in connection to, any services received from Hill Dance Academy Theatre. This liability waiver and release extends to the dance academy together with all owners, partners, and employees.
