Figure Skating Classes

Figure Skating Training Leading to the Professional Athlete

Spirit Ice Arena Figure Skating classes are great for everyone that has an interest in the sport of Figure Skating. We offer a comprehensive program to create a strong foundation for future and current Figure Skating professionals. These programs are for skaters that have completed Basic 6 and Pre-Freeskate in the Learn to Skate program.  These programs offer training in skills ranging from Free skate through Preliminary, Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, to Senior.

In these classes, your figure skating instructors will teach skaters how to perform correctly and safely. These classes and private lessons complement each other, to serve as building block foundation for a skater's figure skating career.
