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 for recreation. This skating program is divided into four 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 programs include skating skills such as stopping, gliding, skating forwards, skating backwards, turning and stopping. Our learn to skate program is offered for four age groups, tots, children, youth and adults.
Our Figure Skating Programs
Our figure skating programs have three categories, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level is offered in three categories, Freestyle, Ice Dance and Artistic figure skating. The Bronze figure skating programs introduce these three main figure skating categories to skaters that have completed the learn to skate program. The Silver and Gold figure skating programs are for figure skaters that are at the intermediate and senior levels and have completed the Bronze level in a discipline.
In our freestyle program skaters learn fundamental figure skating skills such as jumps, spins, stroking and movements in the field. In our Ice Dance programs figure skaters will learn international pattern dances. In the Ice Dance program, when possible, 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 with other skaters in the class. On occasion Skate Toronto offers the Artistic Skate as a Theatre on Ice program where skaters will put together an ice show performance as a group class for the end of the skating program.
Private Skating Lessons
Coaches at Skate Toronto also provide private skating lessons for Skate Toronto members and for non Skate Toronto members at the learn to skate and figure skating levels throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Private skating lessons allow skaters to learn to skate at their own pace and for a skater's coach to customize skating lessons for their personal needs. Private skating lessons are also a good way to get additional support for skaters that are in figure skating programs. This way skaters can progress their skating skills at a faster rate as they get the most individual attention.
Our coaches offer private skating lessons on Ticket Ice and other instructional skating arenas 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 and get in touch with our coaches. A Skate Toronto figure skating coach will get in touch with you to discuss the options nearest to you.
Private skating lessons are typically offered throughout the year, both in the Winter and Summer seasons as there are skating rinks that are open for private skating lessons all year round in the Greater Toronto Area. The rates for private skating lessons depend on the level of the skater, whether it is a private or semi-private skating lesson and the coach. Typically you can expect fees between $30 and $70 for an hour and a minimum of a 1 hour private skating lesson.
