Registration for Winter/Spring Session

We use the studio program MINDBODY for registration, payment and sign-in, and even if you are a long-time student, you will need to have an account through this program. When you buy a class, it will automatically direct you to the program to do this.

 

When you're ready to register, click here, or use the drop-down menu at the top of this page and select Register & Pay for Classes.

 

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.) Thank you!

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.


  • 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.

Things You Need to Know for Winter/Spring Session 2020:

  • The number of weeks/registration cost differs depending on the day of the class.
  • Payments accepted in cash, check or credit card at the studio, and credit card online. You cannot register for a class without paying for it. There will be a $25 fee for returned checks
  • No partial payments will be accepted (unless there is financial hardship). We often have scholarship money and work/study is available and encouraged, too. Email knockonwood@gmail.com with questions.
  • Tuition is nonrefundable after the first day of class. If you request a refund prior to the start of the term, there is a $25 processing fee.
  • Missed classes must be made up in the current session. Exceptions are made when there are extenuating circumstances.
  • For the welfare of our floors, we do not allow nail-on taps except in the cases of our youngest students. All older children and adults must wear shoes with screw-on taps.
  • Don't forget we have shoes available to borrow if you're trying your first class.
  • For those with unpredictable schedules or a spontaneous need to tap, you can always drop-in or use a Class Card! (Adult/Teen classes only)
