Suggested Parking

Parking is $5 after 3 pm Monday through Friday and $4 all day Saturday and Sunday at the Joe’s Parking structure at 746 S. Hope St. (a quick four-block walk to the studio). For a FREE shuttle ride from the lot to DDM, call Downtown Concierge at (213) 896-9260 or make an online reservation at

You may find parking at the meters and lots on Hope Street and 12th St. if you are coming for morning or early afternoon classes, but the prices fluctuate in the evenings. Due to the frequency of events at Staples Center & LA Live in the evenings & weekends, we recommend you use the Joe’s Parking lot.

Suggested Public Transit

We are located just a little more than 1 block from the Pico Station (on Flower just south of 12th), serving the Blue Line & Expo Line. If you’re coming in from another line, just change to the Blue Line at 7th Street Metro Center.
