FREE SKATE
Each free skate level is comprised of a variety of progressive skating skills, transitions, spins and jumps all of which build on the previous skill, providing skaters a strong foundation of all elements. These levels will be taught in a positive and interactive group format such as a bridge program, circuit classes or as an introductory training program. Instructors will focus on quality and mastery of skills.
