ACCEPTANCE OF RISKS AND RELEASE FROM LIABILITY
I understand that certain risks are inherent in any recreational/educational activity.

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 parent’s 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 the 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 Starlit Voice or its authorized representatives’ permission 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 set out by the center/school where 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.
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:
- Refusing to follow staff instructions, behavior guidelines, or program rules
- Refusing to participate in activities or cooperate with staff
- Using profanity, vulgarity, ethnic slurs, or obscenity
- Leaving a program without permission
- Excluding other participants
- Teasing, making fun, or bullying other participants or staff
- Stealing or damaging property
- Using equipment and materials inappropriately and/or without permission
- Endangering the health and safety of children and/or staff
- Threatening other participants or staff
- Pushing, shoving, hitting, kicking, and/or biting other participants or staff
- Using of illicit drugs, alcohol, or tobacco or sexual conduct of any kind
The following actions will be taken if the above-mentioned behaviors are observed:
Staff will issue a verbal warning and redirect the participant to a more appropriate behavior.
Staff will remove the participant from the group to discuss the behavior.
Staff will remove the participant from the group for a time-out and notify the parent of the behavior. Notification will vary, depending on staffing, and might be done by phone, email, or in person.
Staff will call the participant’s parent or emergency contact to have the participant picked up immediately.
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 on 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.
For safety reasons, unless previously arranged with the 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 the ‘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.
USE OF IMAGE
Starlit Voice reserves the right to use photographs and/or recordings of students taken during classes or activities for the use of educational, training or promotional purposes. Any objection to such use must be made in writing to Starlit Voice.
PHOTO & VIDEO RELEASE
Some Starlit Voice sessions may be videotaped or photographed. I grant permission for the use of Child’s image, voice, and work created at the event/course/class, which may be captured through video, photo, digital camera or other media, for Starlit Voice and/or event/course/class training, promotional materials and publications, and other commercial purposes. Any objection to such use must be made in writing to Starlit Voice.

In the event of a dispute, the decision of Starlit Voice will be final and conclusive.
