An insurance against Civil Liability [Burgerlijke Aansprakelijkheid] covers the damages you may have to pay if anyone acting on behalf of your association causes damage or loss to a third party.
An insurance against Physical Accidents [Lichamelijke Ongevallen] covers the costs incurred if the insured has an accident.
You can find all information about the coverage in the document specific provisions of the Danspunt insurance.
Who is covered?
The insurance is ‘nominative’, so everyone whose name is submitted to Danspunt is insured. Dancers, teachers, volunteers, as well as people who work via the specific Belgian payment schemes “verenigingingswerk” (association work) or KVR can be insured.
Non-members who are present during, or who take part in, promotional activities (e.g. an introduction, trial lesson or open day) are also insured.
The self-employed or people who work via SBK or employment office do not normally have to be insured by you. They are covered by their own insurance.
What is covered?
The insurance covers your group’s usual activities. Dance classes and rehearsals, performances, events, barbecues, etc. are covered by the insurance.
Damage to infrastrcture (e.g. damage to a rented dance studio) is not covered. If needed, you can take an optional extra insurance.
Please note: You may have to take out extra insurance for some activities, such as fire insurance or objective liability insurance for fire and explosion or other types of compulsory insurance.
Read more details in the Specific Provisions of the Danspunt insurance.

In addition to the annual insurance, you can take out insurance for Civil Liability and Physical Accidents in the form of day cover for extra activities in which dancers or volunteers take part (dance camps, workshops, performances, etc).
Day cover costs 0.50 euro per person per day.

For activities of six days or longer, it is better to take out annual insurance.
