Returning Competition Team Member?*
In addition to competing as a team member, are you interested in being evaluated at tryouts to potentially compete as a solo, duet, and/or small ensemble?*
In other words, do not indicate, “I’m interested in doing a duet with Susie” without first talking to Susie.
Bear in mind, that a very small percentage of team members participate in solos/duets/ensembles. These routines are extra and supplemental, whereas TEAM routines are the highest priority.*

I also understand that by signing this form, I am legally releasing HP Dance Co., its directors, staff, and choreographers, from financial liability or financial obligation due to any injury that may occur as a direct result from my child performing or practicing with HP Dance Co. whether at practice, camp, or any competitions that HP Dance Co. engages in.

Catastrophic injury and even death may result from engaging in an activity such as dance that involve height, rotation, and motion. With this knowledge of the potential risks involved with the activity of dance, I give my permission for the above named student to participate in the HP Dance Co. program.

Team Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Check all of the roles you're interested in potentially serving in this coming year. (Optional)

I, as the parent, have read the HP Dance Co. Competition Team Tryout Procedures and Team Expectations packet, and do hereby agree to uphold all competition and extra practice policies. I understand that the extra practices are very important to our team and team members and that this agreement will be followed by me to ensure that our team will be properly prepared for all competitions. I also know that private lessons must be taken if the director thinks the dancer is falling behind on a dance. I understand that if a dancer fails to abide by this agreement that the HP Dance Co. director can place her out of a dance routine, which may cause her to be unable to perform or compete that particular dance.

AND I, the minor’s parent and/or legal guardian, understand the nature of the above referenced activities and the Minor’s experience and capabilities and believe the minor to be qualified to participate in such activity. I hereby release, discharge, covenant not to sue and AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND SAVE AND HOLD HARMLESS each of the Releasees from all liability, claims, demands, losses or damages on the minor’s account caused or alleged to have been caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations, and further agree that if, despite this release, I, the minor, or anyone on the minor’s behalf makes a claim against any of the above Releasees, I WILL INDEMNIFY, SAVE AND HOLD HARMLESS each of the Releasees from any litigation expenses, attorney fees,  loss liability, damage, or cost any Releasees may incur as the result of any such claim.
