Gotta love the Beltway!

We offer parties in metro Washington D.C.

Distance charges apply when the party venue is more than 20 minutes’ driving time from our base. In metro D.C., our base is Wheaton, Md. To calculate distance charges, we enter your party address into Google Maps, along with our base (Wheaton, Md.) and the time our instructor must leave Wheaton, Md. to make it to your party on time. There is no fee for the first 20 minutes of drive time in each direction.

We collect the the distance charge at the party, in the form of a check, along with any balance due for the party itself.

Here are examples of distance charges. If your location is more than 60 minutes from any of our bases,  you are out of our area and we will not be able to serve you at that location.

When you provide us with the exact address of your party venue, we can quote an actual charge. You must agree to this charge before we can confirm your reservation.
