(a) Participant Termination: Participant may terminate this Agreement for any reason by providing written notice to The Broadway Collective.
- Termination of this Agreement by Participant for any reason at any time does not alleviate Participant’s obligation to pay Program Fees ias specified in Paragraph 2.

Therefore, Participant understands if Participant cancels this Agreement, Participant will not receive a refund for monies paid and the monies received shall be retained by The Broadway Collective as liquidated damages.

(b) The Broadway Collective may cancel this Agreement at any time for any reason by providing written notice to Participant. In the unlikely event that The Broadway Collective cancels this Agreement prior to commencement of the Program, The Broadway Collective will provide a full refund to Participant.
