movements with music pertaining to the story. The following week the students put on costumes (over their leotard/tights) and
perform their routine. This class is an excellent dance class for beginning little dancers. It is a fun and rewarding experience for
the children to dress up and perform! The Fairy Tale costumes are provided for each student at each performance.

Recognizing the possibility of physical injury that is associated with dance, I hereby release, discharge, and/or otherwise
indemnify Sarah’s Dance Academy and its associated personnel, against any claim by or on behalf of the registrant‟s
participation in this program. Further, my child has received a physical examination by a qualified physician and has been
found to be physically capable of participating in this program. In case of an injury or illness and a parent cannot be
reached, the staff of Sarah‟s Dance Academy may authorize medical attention be given to the student listed above.
Therefore, I grant Sarah’s Dance Academy permission to obtain any needed medical attention for my child.
