Our Learn to Skate Program
The Skate Toronto Learn to Skate program is designed to teach skaters from beginners to more advanced levels the fundamentals of skating. This program is divided into 4 levels and skaters are placed into levels according to their skating ability. Skate Toronto honors any other equivalent learn to skate levels in any other skating program. Our Learn to Skate classes include elements such as stopping, gliding, skating forwards, skating backwards, turning and stopping. Our learn to skate program is offered for tots, children, youth and adults.
Our Figure Skating Programs
Our figure skating programs have three categories, Bronze, Silver and Gold in three categories, Freestyle, Ice Dance and Artistic skating. The Bronze figure skating programs introduce these categories to skaters that have completed the learn to skate program. The Silver and Gold figure skating programs are for figure skaters at the intermediate and senior levels.
In our freestyle program skaters learn figure skating elements including jumps, spins, stroking and field movements. In our Ice Dance category figure skaters will learn international pattern dances. In the Ice Dance program skaters are paired up for dances. In our artistic skating programs skaters are introduced to artistic skating elements and put together a routine to music either as a solo performance or in a group setting. On occasion Skate Toronto offers the Artistic Skate as a Theatre on Ice program where skaters will put together a performance for the end of the program.
Private Skating Lessons
Coaches at Skate Toronto also provide private skating lessons for Skate Toronto members and for non-members at the learn to skate and figure skating levels throughout the Greater Toronto area. Private skating lessons allow you to learn to skate at your own pace and for your coach to customize skating lessons for your personal needs. This way you can progress at a faster rate.
Our coaches offer private skating lessons on Ticket Ice and other instructional skating facilities in North York, Scarborough, Markham, Mississauga, Vaughan, Thornhill and Richmond Hill. For more information about taking private skating lessons for learn to skate or for figure skating at any level please visit the Private Lessons or Contact Us link. A figure skating coach will get in touch with you to discuss your options.
Private skating lessons are typically offered throughout the Winter and Summer seasons as Toronto has many skating rinks that are open for skating lessons all year round. The rates of private skating lessons depends on the level of the skater, whether it is a private or semi-private skating lesson and the coach. Typically you can expect to pay between $30 and $70 for an hour.
