Private Instruction

Coaches are private contractors. Selecting one and continuing with them is between you and the coach. You are responsible for contacting them regarding all aspects of private instruction. The rink does not set up private lessons

A wide range of semi-private and personalized instruction is available at Ice World. The private instruction program features a multi-talented group of outstanding professional instructors, many of whom have unique specialties. All of our coaches are current members of the Professional Skaters Association and U.S. Figure Skating.

Ice World also boasts an off- and on-ice harness for assistance with jumps and spins.

Please note: All fees for private instruction are negotiated exclusively with the instructor, and are over and above all rink fees for freestyle, public sessions and programs.

For advice on specialties and specific instructors, please contact:

Sarah McKahan, Director of Skating Lessons
