Photography/Videography Policy & Release
By participating in Elevation Zouk Festival, you agree that your face or likeness may appear in:
Official Elevation Zouk Festival website, Social media platforms and Elevation Zouk Festival promotion.
Your image may be used for:
Promotion, marketing, print or digital materials, or in any other medium (for example, on Elevation Zouk Festival websites or other sites that promote or mention Elevation Zouk Festival, or in the creation of online albums for the event.)
You consent to being photographed or videoed by Elevation Zouk Festival media team members while in any event spaces, including the event hotel, event venues, after party and pre-party venues (for example, Iron Mountain Hot Springs), whether indoor or outdoor (for example, in venue/hotel parking lots or in venue common areas).
You hold no rights to any photographs, videos, or any other representations of you produced by the media team of Elevation Zouk Festival, its employees, volunteers, affiliates, or participants. You may use the photographs for personal use provided you comply with any directions for use set out by Elevation Zouk or the photographer/videographer. If you plan to use the image for self-promotion or commercial purposes, you must obtain permission from Elevation Zouk Festival and (when applicable), the photographer/videographer.
When you can take your own videos/photos:
You can take pictures or videos of shows, competitions, and social dancing, with the exception of any components where the subject or event specifically requests no videos or photos be taken. For example, a specific group may request no one take videos of a performance.
Elevation Zouk Festival will seek permission prior to posting or using any privately acquired photographs or videos, but retains the right to re-share or embed any photographs or videos publicly posted on social media without specific consent.
Rules about taking videos and photos:
Remember that not everyone likes having photos or videos taken and/or posted. You are responsible for ensuring that the subject of your non-official video or photo consents to appear. For example, you should ask dancers prior to (or, in some cases, immediately after) filming social dancing if they consent to having the video or photo posted. You must not post photos or videos without the consent of the subject. If any person requests you remove a photograph or video of them, you must do so as soon as
You should only film portions of workshops with the consent of the instructor. Most instructors will provide a recap at the end of the class for filming. Please be aware that workshops and teaching are how professionals make their living, and this is not a free online class. It is a class for Elevation Zouk Festival attendees who are seeking to learn. Any videos where instruction takes place must not be posted publicly online or otherwise shared with a network of dancers, and must be used in accordance with Fair Use legislation. This means you can do things like share it privately with a practice partner, but not post online for your whole community to learn from.
The event itself and the participation of international artists are subject to change depending on current government regulations and restrictions.
We are committed to creating the safest environment at our event, while still maintaining a warm welcoming atmosphere. Vaccinations are mandatory for our event due to specific requirements of the Colorado state authorities and we cannot forfeit them, if we want to be able to run an event of our size at all.
Right to Refuse Service
All participants are required to abide by our event Policies, and may be asked to leave with no refund if determined, in Elevation Zouk Festival’s sole discretion, to not comply with them. Elevation Zouk Festival reserves the right to refuse service to anyone if it finds that your participation might be dangerous or harmful to the event’s participants or event’s or its organizers’ image.
