Learn to Skate
Ice Barn is pleased to offer new Learn to Skate programs for skaters of all ages. Learn to Skate is the perfect way to learn or brush up on basic skills (like correct falling and stopping), so the skater can safely and confidently enjoy the benefits of ice skating.
Michelle Farley, Ice Barn’s Lead Instructor for this program, is a 26-year figure skating veteran. She will help build your skills and technique as you learn to skate. Learn to Skate is the first step in the journey to becoming a hockey player, figure skater, or speed skater.
Each session is limited to 15 skaters to ensure valuable instruction and practice. We recommend consistent attendance to maximize the learning experience.
Each session will have a group instruction and a practice portion. During the practice portion, the instructor will come by to work with skaters 1-on-1. This allows us to help skaters with elements they need to improve on individually, to move to the next level. Class sessions are a quick 4 weeks so we do not expect them to move on to the next level each session. Rather, short sessions allow skaters to move to the next skill level at their own pace, without having to wait. Kids are not expected to master all moves before the end of the session. Each of the above-listed elements should be executable with proper foot position and upper body control before moving to the Intermediate Class.
