PARKING: If you’re traveling to our studio by car, allow extra time to search for parking. There is limited street, lot, and garage parking surrounding the studio. We understand that parking in DC can be frustrating however if you arrive more than 15 minutes after the scheduled start time of your class as a result of your inability to find parking, your reservation will be cancelled and your spot will be given to a client on the waitlist. No refund will be provided.

  • PARKING TIP #1: We’re fortunate to be surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the city so you will find that parking spaces are always opening up very close to the studio. Keep circling the area between 13th/15th St NW and Rhode Island Ave/Massachusetts Ave NW to find parking.

  • PARKING TIP #2: Look for parking at the corner of 1400 Highland Terrace NW, DC (Homewood Suites) and 5 Thomas Cir NW, DC (National City Christian Church). Spaces tend to open up in this area all the time.



  • Classes: Early cancel (10 hours prior to the start of class) out of any class without penalty. Late cancel (within 10 hours to the start of class) with penalty. If you late cancel (absent and/or try to enter the class more than 15 minutes after the start of class) the class is forfeited for the day. 

  • Private Lessons: Early cancel (10 hours prior to the start of the private lesson) out of any private lesson without penalty.

  • If a class is FULL signing up for the waitlist, is your best chance of getting into a class. The only way to sign up for the waitlist is to have a valid pricing option (drop in, class pack, and/or membership) on your account. While the pricing option will not be immediately used, the system will verify it is available and valid prior to adding you to the waitlist.

  • If you use the available pricing option for another class while on the waitlist, you will still be added into the class, however the class will show as unpaid. You will be notified via email/text that you have an unpaid class and in order to attend class you will need to cancel a later reservation or purchase an additional class to cover the unpaid class.

  • If you do not make it into the class and/or decide to not accept the spot the pricing option will remain on your account for later use, however no refunds will be given. When a spot becomes available you will receive an email/text notifying you that a spot has become available (learn how to set ensure your notification settings are set up correctly).

  • At this time the only way to automatically confirm your spot in a class is via text message; text back “Y” to attend, or “N” to decline.

  • If you’re confirming your spot via email and CANNOT attend reply to the email with “Sorry I can't make it to class” no response is needed if you CAN attend class.

  • REMINDER: If you’re on the waitlist and can no longer attend class, please cancel the reservation to allow another client to move into the class from the waitlist. Our normal late cancellation policy applies to clients moved into class from the waitlist.

The studio reserves the right to cancel classes with less than 2 pre-registered participants six hours before its scheduled time. Clients that have pre-registered will be notified via the contact information on file. Please make sure your contact information is accurate in your client profile.
