Terms, Conditions, Release of Liability Agreement, Late Pick-Up Policy, and Behavior Policy With Regards To Starlit Voice Events/Courses/Classes
I hereby acknowledge that I am over the age of 18, that I am the parent and/or legal guardian of the child (“Child”), or children registered for this event/course/class, and that I have the authority to make agreements on behalf of Child. I further acknowledge that I have voluntarily chosen to enroll Child in, or attend an event hosted by, Starlit Voice (The Company.) I also give consent to Child’s participation in Company-related activities. I also acknowledge that all of the terms listed in this document apply to me, as well, when I attend an event.
ACCEPTANCE OF RISKS AND RELEASE FROM LIABILITY
I understand that certain risks are inherent in any recreational/educational activity. While I understand that Starlit Voice will take all reasonable steps to safeguard Child or Child’s property, I knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks of injury or harm that may be due to a classroom activity or the actions of fellow students. I also understand and agree that it is my and Child’s responsibility to safeguard his or her personal belongings, and I knowingly and voluntarily assume all risk that personal belongings brought to event/course/class may be lost, misplaced, damaged, or stolen. I hereby waive and release Starlit Voice and its owners, agents, partners, representatives, employees, contractors, staff, and other students from any liability, including but not limited to claims based on negligence or some other act or omission, for any injury, illness, or harm to Child or damage of any personal property, including but not limited to musical instruments, incurred while attending Starlit Voice-related activities.
SAFETY & CONDUCT
For everyone’s safety, children must follow all staff instructions. I understand that if a Child’s actions or attitude are deemed detrimental to other participants, staff, or the general atmosphere, he or she may be sent home without any reimbursement for any payment to Starlit Voice. I agree to accept full responsibility, financially or otherwise, for the conduct of the Child — including paying restitution for damage to equipment, property, and facilities, including the personal property of other participants and the Company.

We reserve the right to refuse attendance of any student who is ill or showing symptoms of illness. Staff may check the student’s temperature as deemed necessary.
It is the parents’ responsibility to keep the students’ health information and emergency contact details accurate and up-to-date. Any special medical conditions or allergies must be disclosed to Starlit Voice.
MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION & SPECIAL NEEDS
I understand and agree that I am responsible for determining Child’s medical, physical or other qualifications and suitability for participating in the event/course/class and its activities. I agree to disclose to Starlit Voice and its staff any pertinent medical, physical, or other conditions and special needs that may affect Child’s participation in these activities. I understand measures will be taken to safeguard the health and safety of all participants; however, in the event of need I hereby grant permission of Starlit Voice or its authorized representatives to arrange for such medical care that Child may require. This includes minor medical care by Starlit Voice staff members. In the event of serious injury or illness, Starlit Voice will follow the protocol as set out by the center/school in which the event/course/class is taking place. In the event that no such protocol exists, Starlit Voice will call the emergency services. Starlit Voice will also use all reasonable efforts to contact the parent, guardian and/or people listed as emergency contacts. I am aware that Starlit Voice assumes no liability for the costs or provision of medical care in the event that care is needed during or after this program.
Starlit Voice requires one month notice prior to withdrawal from our classes. There is a strictly NO refund or credit of any class fee or charges paid.
Starlit Voice reserves the right to vary programs and to reschedule or cancel an event if it is under-subscribed or for any other reason. Starlit Voice aims to give participants at least 1 week’s notice if an event is rescheduled or cancelled, and give a full refund for cancelled events.
For safety reasons, unless previously arranged with staff, please do not leave your child unattended at our partner schools before or after class without adult supervision. Starlit Voice will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any injury or loss of property/ damage of personal property in the partner schools.
During out of school rehearsals, performances and classes children must be left in the care of a current Starlit Voice Company Member. A list of our current staff can be found on our website under ‘About us’ tab. Professional Actors and other outside practitioners employed specifically for the purposes of production or guest lecturing are not deemed ‘Starlit Voice Company Members’ and will not be liable to take responsibility for a child’s welfare. Starlit Voice cannot be held responsible for any incident occurring from negligence, where a child has been not left by a parent or guardian under the supervision of a Starlit Voice Company Member.
Students should wear appropriate, comfortable clothes that allow freedom of movement during the class.
Starlit Voice staff works hard to ensure that everyone has a safe, educational, and fun time while participating in our programs. Behaviors which disrupt staff from effectively supervising, instructing, or interacting with participants will not be tolerated. Such behaviors may include, but are not limited to:
The following actions will be taken if the above mentioned behaviors are observed:
The above steps are generally taken, in the order listed, over the course of a single session of the program. In cases of particularly malicious and/or problematic behavior, a step, or steps, might be skipped. If a participant gets to Step 4, he or she may return to the program for the next session only after discussion with the Director, but will be at Step 3 upon return. Participants who get to Step 3 or 4 more than once may be dismissed from the program, and might be barred from registering for future programs.
No refunds will be issued in the case of dismissal from a program based on inappropriate behavior.
Important: While we might like to have eyes in the backs of our heads, we really don’t. Children retaliating against another participant is also considered disruptive behavior, so please encourage your children to speak up, and tell an instructor, if they are having problems.
