INJURIES & MEDICAL CONDITIONS

4.1    It is the student’s responsibility to inform their class teacher of any injuries or medical conditions that they are currently being treated for or have been treated for in the past, that may impact their ability to participate in class, prior to the commencement of class.

4.2    Our main priority to all dancers is to implement safe dance practice and to teach our students about safe dance practice in order to eliminate/reduce the risk of  injuries and accidents. Due to this important reason, any student who requires to participate at less than 100% (ie. marking out routines) or not participate at all in class due to an injury or illness, or is absent from class for:

  1. a) 2 or more consecutive weeks during Term 1, 2 & 3, will be required to provide a medical certificate for clearance to recommence full participation in class, if due to injury/illness, or will require a written letter of absence signed by your parent/guardian, if due to being absent. This must be provided prior to the commencement of the students first class back as a hard copy in class or emailed to maxijazzdancestudio@hotmail.com. The student will not be able to participate in classes until one of the above is provided.
  2. b) 2 or more consecutive weeks during Term 4, will be required to provide a medical certificate for clearance to recommence full participation in classes and concerts. The student and/or parent will also be asked to arrange a meeting with the class teacher/s to discuss participation in the upcoming concerts, as too much of the physical aspect of classes and rehearsals will have been missed. Students should all be at their peak in terms of flexibility, strength and stamina during the lead up to the rehearsals and concerts. By only being able to walk through routines or having to sit out completely, their muscles will potentially have tightened and mobility will be restricted. While being out of dancing with an injury the students lose so much conditioning and in some cases their return to dance is troubled with added injury or prolonged injury.

4.3    All studio locations have a first aid kit which is available to all students through the class teacher. Due to government regulations, we are unable to provide any student with Panadol, Nurofen or other equivalent medication.

4.4    Maxi-Jazz Dance Studio takes no responsibility for any injuries that may occur. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility or student over 18 years of age responsibility to provide their own health care insurance.

4.5    Maxi-Jazz Dance Studio must be notified of any allergies, medication or medical conditions that may directly or indirectly relate to their participation in class or other Maxi-Jazz Dance Studio events. If at any time, your medical situation changes, we must be notified in writing.

4.6    In case of an emergency, the staff of Maxi-Jazz Dance Studio will call an ambulance or take your child to an available physician at the expense of the parent/guardian.
