To all adult skaters! We’re holding a Stroking Seminar for low to mid level adult skaters to learn on and off ice techniques for improving the quality of their skating skills. Skaters are invited to register to attend a full morning of skating, stretching, and instruction. Each skater will receive 40 minutes of an on-ice group-based stroking class, 40 minutes of an off-ice ballet class, and an additional 40 minutes of open freestyle to practice skating skills. Online registration and ticket sales coming soon!
