Progressively building upon skills learned each class, this 4 week program provides an in depth breakdown of basic skating skills. Every week we will do a deep dive into a skill and allow for plenty of questions, time to practice each drill, and more direct feedback to your development. This program is intended for skaters who can stand on their skates with enough confidence to practice safely.

 

We offer rental skates and safety pads during our lessons! If you require gear please follow this link RENTAL to learn more!
