Free Skate 1-6 and Specialty Classes

Intro, Pre-Freeskate and Freeskate 1-6

Skaters are always excited to graduate to Freeskate. During the Basic 1-6 classes, they have already been introduced to beginning spins, jumps, spirals and other simple free skating elements. Each Freeskate level is divided into four sections: Moves in the Field – Dance Sequence- Spins - Jumps. All elements should be mastered before skater advances to the next Freeskate level.

The Freeskate levels are designed to build skaters a strong foundation. Once a skater graduates from Freeskate 6, they will show good use of edges, proper skating skills, all basic spin positions and all single jumps.
