Figure Skating Classes

Figure Skating is FUN!

Spirit Ice Arena Figure Skating classes are great for everyone that has an interest in the sport of Figure Skating. We offer a great way to create a strong foundation for future and current Figure Skaters. These classes are for skaters that have completed Basic 8 in the Learn to Skate program.

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