Skating Academy

The Skating Academy develops the complete skater by training Technique, Artistry and Athleticism.  We offer group-format On Ice classes in Jumps, Spins and Skating Skills, as well as Off-Ice Classes in Dance, Strength & Conditioning, and Off Ice Jump Training.

No matter your level, our classes provide a competitive and fun environment for skaters to learn and grow.

Note: All Academy skaters are required to pass Academy Prep 4 (or comparable courses) to participate in on-ice Academy classes.
