The U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills program offers an introductory skating curriculum for the adult who has never skated. It is divided into six levels in which beginner adult skaters will progress at an individual rate while being challenged and motivated. The curriculum is designed specifically to teach the adult skater the basic elements of forward, backward, turns and stops before advancing to more challenging skating moves. 

Adults may also elect to take the Intro to Ice Dance class as a level on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons when available.

For adult skaters who have passed all 6 levels in the adult curriculum and wish to move on to Freeskate lessons, please register for a Free Skate class by following this link.
