​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A private lesson is a great way to get additional coaching on the skills that you are learning in our group lessons. It is also for individuals who learn best in a one-on-one setting. 

Most skaters begin private lessons when they want to commit more time to learning and mastering ice skating skills, and to pursue competitive skating.

Private lessons are one-on-one instruction and are held during public ice skating sessions and freestyle sessions (for higher level figure skaters). For private lessons, we only allow one student at a time with a private instructor.
