Dance Schools Insurance

Specialist Dance Insurance for dance schools

As a dance school, you can get business insurance from a general carrier, but there are good reasons for working with a specialist broker who understands how the performing arts operate and can provide specialist dance school insurance.

The performing arts, by nature, can often cause complications for insurance, and many non-specialist carriers have fixed (and inaccurate) ideas about the industry – charging high premiums to protect themselves against perceived “high-risk” activities.

La Playa looks after dance schools, dance studios and dance companies, combining comprehensive cover with expert advice.

What if...

  • A pupil or staff member sustains an injury at work?
  • Money from ticket sales goes missing overnight?
  • You've hired equipment and it gets damaged?

Dance Insurance coverage includes:

  • Property:office contents, computers, hired in equipment, hired/borrowed wardrobe, audio & visual equipment, staging, portable dance flooring, merchandize stock, show DVDs, brochures
  • Personal Accident: cover for injury/illness to key staff/teachers
