Advanced Ice Skating Skills/ Pre Free Skate

These levels will be taught in a positive and interactive group format. Classes are 45 minutes of on ice instruction followed by 45 minutes of off ice.
On ice classes are conducted in two 20 minute circuits with a 5 minute warm up, and are taught by some of our world class professionals! Instruction will include jumps, spins, choreography and introductions to some of our other skating programs like synchronized skating, theater on ice and artistry in motion.
Off Ice group class will introduce all aspects of dance such classical ballet, jazz, hip-hop, modern dance, and will also feature some of the typical off -ice training that our high level skaters do such as plyometrics, cardio and stretch.
