More general information about the 2024 Summer Session can be found on the CLASSES page.


Registration for Classes: We strongly encourage registration for classes, since we need to know you're coming in order to keep our classes going! Drop-ins are always welcome, too... but if you know you'll be around, please register! And if you are new to us, or aren’t sure you are on a teacher’s Zoom list, please email us to be sure.


COVID-19 policy: masks are optional but strongly encouraged, especially in large classes. If you don't feel well, please stay home (or join by Zoom).


Class Cards are available for adult/teen classes ($21/class by paying for either 5 or 10 classes in advance). Class Cards are available online and are good for 6 months from purchase date. Single-class drop-in is $22.


Class Levels

  • It is common for students to stay in a level for a year or more. Please consult with your teacher on which level is right for you.
  • Also, please note that the class level is not equivalent to number of years of dance classes! If you are unsure what level to take, please send an email or call us at 202-722-1625.

  • Note: Every teacher has a different teaching style and exact levels vary from teacher to teacher. Intro is the very beginning level (e.g., never put on tap shoes or haven’t tapped in a long, long time); 1, 1/2, 2, and 2/3 can be considered advanced beginning to intermediate; 3 is intermediate; 4 is intermediate/advanced; and 5 is advanced.

NOTE to New Students Taking Classes In Person: To get into our studio, please see the call box to the left of the door. You will need to push #010. (If you scroll through the names listed in the directory, it will show up as Knock On Wood Tap Studio.) That will ring the office to buzz you in. This is a building operation and almost all of the time it works smoothly.


NOTE to All Students: Classes are subject to cancellation if under-enrolled.


Unless you tell us otherwise, pictures and videos will be taken from time to time in the studio for promotional purposes. Registration will also automatically sign you up for our newsletter, if you do not already receive it. (You can opt out simply by unsubscribing.)
