ICE DANCE CLASSES – ALL AGES

Ice dance is a form of skating that came out of ballroom dancing, and still shares many of the same elements – but all done on ice!  If you love music, dancing, and ice skating – we help you discover the joy of ballroom dancing on ice. Ice dance is performed both with a partner and solo. Skaters learn the first six dance patterns in the U.S. Figure Skating test structure. It is great for freestylers, synchronized skaters, as well as skaters of all ages
