Learn to Skate with Harmony House Skating School
All classes are 40 minute instructor led sessions. Skaters will learn proper technique with their instructor leading the way. Skaters move through each class level at their own pace, earning testing badges when they achieve all the skills in each level as soon as they are ready. No need to wait for a new session to move up! Skaters are placed in classes based on age and experience. Instructors will assess skaters and move them to the appropriate level as necessary.
