Subject to the foregoing arbitration provision, you and Danceplace agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the city and county of Toronto, Ontario. Either you or Danceplace may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in Toronto, Ontario, necessary to protect the rights or property of you or Danceplace (or its agents, suppliers, and subcontractors) pending the completion of arbitration.
Waiver; Invalid Provisions
