After Skate UK Star

If you show real flair during your classes you may be talent spotted by one of our coaches and invited to join the NIC’s Skate Academy in Figure Skating and this could be your pathway to becoming an elite athlete.

If you are not one of the chosen few you can still develop your skills on the ice with our figure skating classes.

This will be an opportunity to improve the skaters overall ability in either discipline through focussing on the basic techniques of generic figure skating.

The classes will involve both Figure Skating and Ice Dancing skills including jumping and spinning, footwork and turns, posture, edge quality and artistry, thereby exploring all aspects of figure skating.

This group session is ideal for any skaters wishing to develop and strengthen their overall skating ability. The cost of each session is £13.50 and is open to all skaters that have passed Bronze Free or higher. The age limit for this session is 18 years.
