Class Descriptions

  • BEGINNER - A very good place to start! Swizzles, forward and backward skating, snowplow stops, one-foot glides will all be covered. (Note that five & six year olds have an option to start on their own in this class, or to join the Smalls & Talls class with an adult on the ice by their side.)
  • ADVANCED BEGINNER - For skaters with a bit of experience on the ice. If you have mastered swizzles, snowplow stops, slaloms, beginning one-foot glides, and basic backward skating, then you’ll be comfortable in this class. We’ll work on crossovers, forward & backward edges, 3-turns, lunges, two-foot spin, and more.
  • SMALLS & TALLS - A fun, safe place for our youngest skaters. This class will be an introduction to the ice through games and activities. A parent or other partner will join in the fun. Prerequisite: parents need to be able to skate the width of the rink with safe stability. Parents, please discuss with me if you need help meeting this prerequisite.  
  • ADULT - This will be a beginning level class. Enrollment will be limited to no more than four skaters as the class will be held on the open skate session.
