FREESTYLE SESSIONS + COACHES

Take your skating to the next level 

We have experienced coaches, level-specific freestyle sessions Monday-Friday, high performance specialty sessions focusing on stroking, jumps and spins, off-ice conditioning, and additional training tools to aid figure skaters in their development. 

Located in Fairfax, Virginia, we are minutes from Washington, DC, the Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Reagan National Airport (DCA). Our skaters have benefitted from training with national, Worlds, Olympic and international coaches and choreographers, former ice show performers and ice show company principal skaters. Our skaters have also trained alongside other national and international competitive skaters who visit our rink to train with our coaches.

Contact us today to learn more about our offerings and to train with our coaches.
