Waiver of Liability, Indemnity Agreement, and Assumption of Risk
Waiver: In consideration of permission to use, today and on all future dates, the property, facilities, and services of Idaho Ballroom Academy (hereafter referred to as IBA), I, on behalf of myself, my heirs, personal representatives, or assigns, do hereby release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue IBA, its owners, its directors, officers, employees, volunteers, independent contractors, professional trainers, and agents from liability from any and all claims arising from the ordinary negligence of IBA or any of the aforementioned parties. This agreement applies to 1) personal injury (including death) from accidents or illnesses arising from participation in IBA activities including, but not limited to, organized activities, classes, performances, competitions, dance camps, observation, and individual use of facilities, premises, or equipment; and 2) any and all claims resulting from the damage to, loss of, or theft of property.
Indemnification and Hold Harmless: I also agree to Hold Harmless and indemnify IBA from all claims resulting from negligence and to reimburse them for any expenses incurred as a result of my involvement at IBA. I further agree to pay all costs and attorneys' fees incurred by IBA in investigating and defending a claim or suit if my claim is withdrawn, or to the extent a court or arbitration determines that IBA is not responsible for the injury or loss.
Severability and Venue: The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing waiver and assumption of risks agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of Idaho and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect. Likewise, I agree that if legal action is brought, it must be brought in Madison County, Idaho.
Acknowledgment of Understanding: I have read this waiver of liability and indemnification agreement and fully understand its terms. I understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. I acknowledge that I am signing the agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend my signature to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law in the State of Idaho.
