We are located in the Provident Building in downtown Tacoma. Our address is: 917 Pacific Ave, Suite 100 Tacoma, WA 98402.  Our entrance is on the back side of the building on Court A (right across the street from Enigma Escape Rooms).  We right behind Pita Pit.

Our studio is open Thursday- Friday from 4pm-7pm Saturday from 12pm-7pm and Sunday from 12pm-4pm.  We also have a variety of classes throughout the week 


There is abundant street parking ($1/hour) all around us and a small paid lot right across from us.  Street parking on Saturdays is $2 for the entire day and Sundays/Holidays are free.  Pay stations accept cash and card, or pay with the Flowbird app.   

There are also several paid parking lots  to choose from including both surface lots and garages.  Each lot has its own pay system, and most lots charge 24/7 so make sure you follow posted signs if you park in these lots.

SKIP THE PAID PARKING and park for free at the Tacoma Dome.  Take the Link Light Rail to the 11th Street/Commerce Street Station and we are just a three block walk away. 

On weekdays the train runs every 12 minutes between 7am – 8pm, Saturday between  8am – 10pm and Sunday between 10am-6pm.
