REGISTRATION TERMS & CONDITIONS
The following Terms and Conditions constitute a legally binding agreement between the dancer (the “Registrant,” and if the Registrant is under the age of 18, the Registrant’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s) (the “Parent”)) attending an event (an “Experience”) being organized and hosted by Liberate Artists Inc., a Pennsylvania Benefit Corporation headquartered in Los Angeles, CA (“Liberate”).
Health & Safety Agreement
By attending an in-person or virtual Experience, the Registrant (with Parent permission, if the Registrant is under 18) has elected to participate in dance or performance activities (“Physical Activities”) with Liberate.
The Registrant understands that by participating in this Experience, whether in person or virtually, will involve Physical Activities that carry certain associated risks including, but not limited to, physical injury, severe bodily harm, and/or death. Registrant is also aware that human error or negligence can contribute to such injuries. Registrant and/or Parent voluntarily assume any and all risks associated with Physical Activities and both agree to incur and assume all risks as conditions of participation in Physical Activities.
Registrant and/or Parent hereby waive all claims (past, present or future), release and discharge, covenant not to sue, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Liberate and its officers, employees, and agents from any and all losses arising from or in connection with damage or destruction of any real or personal property of the Registrant and/or Parent and/or personal injury resulting from Registrant’s participation in the Experience and to the extent that any such damage is due to any negligence or omission of Liberate and its officers, employees and agents, to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Registrant and/or Parent represents that Registrant is sufficiently healthy and physically able to participate in the Experience and that Registrant has no physical or mental condition that would impair Registrant’s ability to participate in the Experience fully and safely. Registrant and/or Parent also acknowledges and agrees that Registrant may only attend an in-person Experience with the supervision of an adult, 19 years or older (“Caretaker”) if Registrant is under 18 years old. Caretaker shall be responsible for the well-being and supervision of Registrant at all times during the entire Experience, including all times before or after the Experience where the Registrant is on the premises where the Experience is held. Liberate shall not responsible, at any time or to any extent, for the supervision or welfare of Registrant during their attendance of an Experience, whether in-person or virtually.
Registrant and/or Parent hereby irrevocably grants to Liberate and its affiliates, sponsors, and Experience organizers, the unconditional right to film, photograph and record photos and video of the Experience and each of its participants and attendees, including Registrant, Parent and/or Caretaker. Registrant and/or Parent unconditionally consents to Liberate’s use, alteration and reproduction of all such filmed, photographed and recorded items for publicity purposes in all media including, without limitation, to all forms of: electronic digitization; telecommunication systems now known or created in the future; digital photography; two and three dimensional reproductions; sounds and electronically generated voice likenesses; and the right to license third parties to exercise such rights on behalf of Liberate, as Liberate considers appropriate in its sole discretion.
Refunds; Registration Credits; Rescheduling; Cancellations
Upon Registrant being registered for Event, no refunds will be authorized (except as provided herein) for reasons including, but not limited to, change of facility/venue, rescheduling of dates, or due to Registrant’s inability to attend Experience. All payment plans initiated by Registrant and/or Parent must be completed in their entirety or: (i) such Registrant or Parent may forfeit all previously made payments, and/or (ii) Liberate may cancel the Registrant’s scholarship, where applicable.
If Registrant can no longer attend an Experience, all Registration payments will be held as a credit, redeemable against a future Liberate Experience bearing the same name and held within twelve months from the date of the Experience the Registrant was scheduled to attend. All such credits will expire after the aforementioned twelve-month period.
If Liberate cancels an Experience, for any reason, all registration payments will be refunded within two weeks of the cancelation announcement. Registrant and/or Parent acknowledges, understands, and agrees that any Experience start date may be rescheduled up to twelve months from the original Experience start date. Any Experience reschedule within this twelve-month period shall be considered a “Reschedule” for the purposes of this agreement, not a cancellation. Refunds are not available for a Rescheduled Experience, even if the rescheduled date does not permit the Registrant to attend.
Force Majeure Clause

In the event that Liberate does Reschedule an Experience due to a Force Majeure Event, any Registrant for that Experience will automatically be registered to the Rescheduled Experience date/(s)s. If Registrant cannot attend the Rescheduled date(/s), all such Registration payments will be held as a credit, redeemable against a future Liberate Experience bearing the same name and held within twelve months from the date of the Experience the Registrant was scheduled to attend. All such credits will expire after the aforementioned twelve-month period.
