As it should appear in the program
Applicant has permission to participate in Alabama Ballet Presents George Balanchine's The Nutcracker®. I understand that he/she must attend all rehearsals unless expressly excused by the rehearsal coaches. I also understand that the production fee ($270) must be paid by the first rehearsal and that I will be held responsible for all production fees if my child withdraws from the production after rehearsals begin. Rehearsal coaches will communicate with parents through the BAND app and/or email
During these times of Covid-19, the State of Alabama Ballet, Inc., (the “Ballet”) is following all of the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help all participants and staff maintain a safe environment for our events and programs by practicing social distancing, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette and other recommended measures and by following our Wellness Plan which is attached hereto. The risks associated with contracting Covid-19 are well known. There is a risk of contracting the virus while at the Alabama Ballet. Of course, you, or your child, could contract the virus outside the Ballet and unrelated to its programs. You, your children and the staff could be currently infected by Covid-19 and have no symptoms. Determining who currently is infected is challenging during these times due to the limited availability of testing. For that reason, our Wellness Plan attempts to use best practices to limit the risk, but no guarantees can be made. In full recognition of the fact that the virus can be contracted anywhere and at any time, the undersigned acknowledges and agrees to observe the policies and procedures of the Ballet and its Wellness Plan and, further, acknowledges that despite all safety precautions the virus can still be contracted. By my e-signature above, I confirm that I have read the Notice and on behalf of myself, and my minor children, I understand that participation in any Ballet workshops, classes and/or programs is not free of risk, including the risk of exposure and infection with the Covid-19 virus. On behalf of myself and each minor child, I accept the risks associated with participating in any program or activity [and agree individually, and on behalf of my minor children, to waive and release Alabama Ballet from any liability in the event that I or my children contract Covid-19.]
