For dance schools and instructors

Young children and teenagers across the United States share the dream of becoming an accomplished dancer. Many hope to develop their skills by attending a dance studio to receive professional instruction.

If you own a dance studio or serve as an instructor, you play a prominent role in shaping the futures of your students. Due to the nature of your occupation, you also face certain liability risks that could place your finances at risk.

Liability insurance is essential for protecting your assets when an accident or incident occurs. But many insurance carriers do not offer this type of coverage due to the relatively high exposure it presents. That’s where XINSURANCE can step in and fill the void.

What Can Dance Studio Liability Insurance Cover?

The backbone of any comprehensive dance studio plan is commercial general liability insurance. CGL protects against claims by third parties (dance students and their families) for injuries and property damage they incur while attending your studio. Should an injured party decide to sue you, your insurance will pay for any awarded judgment or settlement amounts up to the limits of the policy. Other CGL coverage areas include legal defense costs, medical bills, and advertising injury.

Depending on your situation, you may also elect to carry more specialized types of liability insurance:

  • Commercial general liability: Offers broad coverage for claims of injuries and property damage sustained by third parties.
  • Commercial auto liability (available in most states): Pays for injuries and property damage resulting from accidents caused by vehicles owned by the dance studio.
  • Property coverage: Covers damage sustained by the dance studio building and its contents.
  • Special events: Provides liability coverage during parties and other one-time events held at the studio.
  • Alleged sexual abuse and molestation liability: Covers you if a student or family member makes allegations of sexual misconduct against you or an employee.
  • Alleged assault and battery liability: Provides liability coverage if injuries result from an altercation that occurs on studio property.
  • Professional liability (E&O): Also known as errors and omissions insurance, this coverage protects you if you make a mistake or provide advice that contributes to an injury or improper decision.
  • Individual liability: Provides personal liability coverage for the dance studio owner.
  • Communicable disease coverage: Offers liability protection, resulting directly from a pandemic, in the event you are named in a lawsuit regarding a customer alleging they were exposed from your operation.

We offer liability insurance in amounts of up to $10 million, or as much as $20 million via our reinsurance partners.

Examples of When Dance Studio Insurance Will Protect You

Your dance studio policy should provide coverage in these situations, assuming you carry the applicable coverages:

  • A visitor to your studio slips and falls on a wet spot on the floor and suffers a severe injury
  • A student accuses you or another instructor of sexual misconduct during a private dance lesson
  • You attempt to teach a student a new step that causes her to fall and injure herself
  • A former employee sues you for wrongful termination
  • A student claims that advice you’ve given contributed to an injury
  • An employee is involved in an accident while transporting a student to a recital (non-owned auto liability would provide additional coverage beyond the limits of the employee’s personal policy if needed)
