Our Figure Skating Philosophy

Practice Makes Perfect! We welcome all freestyle level skaters to practice their skills during our freestyle practice sessions.

All practice sessions are general sessions, allowing for practice of all disciplines of figure skating.  Our instructors and staff value parental involvement and encourage parents to partner with our team to give your child the most rewarding and FUN learning experience possible.


Additionally, we offer group classes for our figure skaters and ice dancers to enhance their learning. Please see our class brochure and offerings here: Freestyle & Dance Brochure (Winter & Spring)
