Which Type of Insurance Do Theatre Companies Need?
Insurance is a concept that theatre companies understand they need, but maybe not which types of policies since there are so many to choose from. In the industry of teaching and education, there is a unique set of risks that must be addressed by the proper insurance protection.
The first and most common insurance needed by dance companies is a BOP or Businessowners policy. This type will package together General Liability and Property coverage. Whether you own or rent the building in which your theatre company resides, you can protect it and the personal property owned by the business here. The General Liability will provide protection for the business in the event that a third party becomes injured on the premises, such as a slip and fall. These claims often happen in the winter, or after the floor is freshly mopped.
Another critical insurance policy that is necessary for all educators is Professional Liability. Professional Liability insurance will protect your business from allegations of negligence. If a dancer that you are instructing makes a wrong move based on the teacher’s direction and is injured, the family could claim that the teacher was negligent. Even if it is an honest mistake or not a mistake at all, you will have to pay to fight it in court. Defense costs can add up to tens of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The policy will cover court fees and costs to hire an attorney should you need one.
