Skating School

Community Ice Skating @Kendall offers a program for those who want to learn or improve their skating while having fun. Our instructors teach based on US Figure Skating Guidelines and are handpicked for their ability to work with the lesson's age group. If you or your child have never skated before, or if you'd just like to feel more comfortable on the ice, the Community Ice Skating @Kendall Skating School is for you!
Learn to Skate
Our Learn to Skate five-lesson series is designed for those who have never skated or never had formal skating lessons. We begin with how to get up and fall down on skates, then progress to the fundamentals of skating, stressing balance, glide, and proper form on the ice.
All classes meet once a week for five weeks (no classes held Dec. 22-27, Jan. 1, or Feb. 15-21) — view the full schedule. Separate Learn to Skate series are offered for adults (12 and older) and children (age 4–11).
