Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19

All participants are required to sign this Agreement. Anyone who does not agree to this Agreement in its entirety cannot participate in Earthdance Creative Living Project, Inc. (AKA Earthdance) events.

In addition to the normal risks associated with events, Earthdance cannot guarantee that you won’t become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending Earthdance could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19. By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending Earthdance and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Earthdance may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Earthdance employees and participants and their families.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my attendance or participation at Earthdance.  On my behalf, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Earthdance, its directors, organizers, employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto.

I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Earthdance, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Earthdance program. Should Earthdance become aware of any potential cases or contamination, all participants and staff will be notified in person or via email as soon as possible. Should a COVID-19 infection/s occur at the event, or due to a sudden spike in COVID-19 cases before the event Earthdance organizers reserve the right to require infected participants to leave and/or cancel the remainder of the event without refunding the tuition fees.

Additional Safety Release

Please be aware that you are responsible for your own safety during your participation at Earthdance Events. This includes your physical safety as well as your personal safety and well being as it relates to personal boundaries.
Because of the kinetic nature of Contact Improvisation and other movement forms, as well as group activities practiced during Earthdance Events, it is important to pay particular attention to preparing yourself for movement in relation to others while maintaining awareness of yourself and your environment while dancing.

It is the responsibility of each person to establish her/his own definition of personal boundaries within the context of Earthdance hosted events and to communicate his/her own personal boundaries either directly or with assistance. Earthdance encourages guests to ask for support if needed in defining or communicating their own boundaries. 

I am choosing to participate in this Event at Earthdance, 252 Prospect St. Plainfield, MA 01070, and I agree to be responsible for my own safety, both physical and personal.  I understand that there is risk of injury in any movement practice and group activity.  I understand that I am responsible for defining and communicating my own personal boundaries, whether on my own or with assistance. Earthdance, its staff, organizers, facilitators and owners of the property are not responsible for any injury or transgression to my person or belongings. I agree to not hold Earthdance, its staff, organizers, facilitators and owners of the property liable for any injury or damages related to my use of the facilities or participation in this event.
