Dance Schools & Studios Insurance

Dance Schools & Studios Insurance

Have you been paying lip service to insurance? Now’s the time to engage!

Premises-based dance schools present a very specific set of risk exposures for insurance. At La Playa, we have decades of experience in dance school and dance studio insurance. We’re passionate about the arts and many of us are practitioners and active consumers.

Why work with a specialist broker?

  1. We understand the risks and pressures you face – we speak your language
  2. You’ll get the right cover where you need it – and NOT where you don’t
  3. You’ll feel supported with expert advice to help you make the right insurance decisions
  4. Our specialist ‘umbrella’ policies, like Dance Portfolio, are designed to prevent gaps and expensive duplications between policies

What if...

  • A class member or teacher is injured during a lesson?
  • Borrowed costumes, props or equipment get damaged?
  • One of your performers is injured on stage?
  • A dispute goes legal?

La Playa’s Dance Portfolio insurance policy is specially designed for premises-based dance schools and studios, combining comprehensive cover with expert advice.  Arranged on a continuous basis with an interest-free instalment facility, covers include:

  • Property: office contents, computers, hired in equipment, hired/borrowed wardrobe, audio & visual equipment, staging, portable dance flooring, merchandise stock, show DVDs, brochures
  • Business Interruption: protects income streams during physical and technological disruptions (fire, flood, power & telecommunications failure, prevention of access to venue)
  • Public, Product & Employers' Liabilities: for staff and parent volunteers, audience, refreshments, merchandise and dancewear. Public liability also covers compliance with the Data Protection Act and health & safety issues
  • Money: box office receipts, fees, costume and show DVD sales income, programme/merchandise cash

We can also arrange:

  • Abuse & Molestation insurance(for working with children, young people and vulnerable adults)
  • Business Travel: insurance for trips to shows and competitions, visits and exchanges
  • Trustee Liability Insurance: your trustees could be held personally liable for financial loss, poor administration (including inadequate insurance), tax errors, dishonesty of an employee, breach of confidentiality, breach of copyright. Give them the protection they deserve!
  • Legal Expenses: insurance for when things go pear-shaped: defence costs for disputes including tax, VAT, employment and discrimination issues
  • Personal Accident: cover for injury/illness to key staff/teachers
  • Key person insurance - protecting your organisation's future
  • Employee Benefits - pensions and benefits to help you attract & retain top talent

We understand you so well, we’ll complete the form for you, if you prefer! Let's talk...
