3rd Law Dance/Theater Waiver and Release of Liability             

In consideration of being permitted to participate in classes, rehearsals, performances, instruction activities, administrative work, volunteer work, or any activities with and/or for 3rd Law Dance Theater (the “Activities”), I hereby agree to the following:

(A) My choice to participate in the Activities is knowing, voluntary, and made for my personal benefit and/or enjoyment. I understand that 3rd Law Dance/Theater (the “Company”) does not require me to participate in the Activities. I understand that participating in the Activities may involve inherent risks and dangers of accidents, property loss or damage, serious personal and bodily injury, death, and severe personal and economic losses, and I ASSUME THE RISKS of all such losses, damages, injuries, death, and economic losses. I agree and understand that there may be other risks not known to me or reasonably foreseeable at this time. I understand and I have considered the risks involved, and I voluntarily and freely choose to assume these risks.

(B) I fully and forever waive, release, and discharge the Company, its directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives, agents, contractors/vendors, the activity or event holders, and activity or event sponsors (the “Releasees”), from any and all liability, losses, injuries, claims, demands, actions and causes of action of any kind or nature, including but not limited to death, disability, and personal injury, that I or any of my property may sustain resulting from or in any way relating to my participation in the Activities, regardless of whether such loss is caused by the negligence, omission, fault, or other act of the Releasees or others and regardless of whether such liability arises in tort, contract, strict liability or otherwise, except for the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Releasees.

(C) I promise not to initiate any claim, lawsuit, court action or other legal proceeding against the Releasees, nor join or assist in the prosecution of any claim for money or other damages which anyone may have, on account of injuries, losses, or damages, in connection with my participation in the Activities. This means that I, as well as my relatives, heirs and any agents, cannot sue to hold Releasees responsible for any injury, loss, or damage in connection with the Activities, even if it is due to the negligence, act, omission, or other fault of Releasees. I waive my insurers’ right to make a claim against Releasees based on payments by insurers to me or on my behalf for any reason.

(D) I will indemnify, defend, hold harmless, and reimburse the Releasees from any and all damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) made or incurred by the Releasees or paid by them to any person (including to me or my insurers) relating to any accident, injury (including death), loss, or property damage arising out of or otherwise relating to my participation in the Activities, even if such injuries, losses, damages, or death were caused in whole or in part by the Releasees’ negligence. The waiver and release of liability shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.
