Bridge Program - Advanced Figure Skating Classes


The bridge program is designed to teach figure skating elements at a faster pace in a group lesson environment.

We are excited to offer our affordable sessions to help our skaters progress! These classes are intended for mid level skaters.  And will be held during our normal learn to skate times.

This program introduces skaters to a “training program” and offers them an introduction to all of the elements in skating and what is required if they choose to continue to skate recreationally or begin a competitive career.

The on-ice skating curriculum includes skills from Pre-Free Skate and Free Skate 1 - 6 (more details are in the images below):

  • Warm up and cool down
  • Stroking, edges and power skating
  • Introductory moves in the field
  • Introductory ice dance
  • Beginner synchronized team
  • Spins
  • Jumps
  • Artistry in Motion - beginning choreography and style

This class is intended for skaters who are currently enrolled in group or freestyle lessons or work with a private instructor.
