About the Program

Skating School

Desert Ice Castle’s Skating School offers excellent general ice skating, and figure skating developmental programs. Skaters enjoy a wide variety of classes for beginner through advanced levels. Group lessons offer an excellent introduction to skating and provide a foundation for fun that will last a lifetime.

OUR GOAL: To build the skills that will lead to a strong recreational skater and form a solid foundation for those who decide to pursue the sport further.

The curriculum is a blend of both programs and prepares the student to make an easy transition into either direction of the skating world. The program is designed to maximize the student’s development, enhance learning, and provide a solid background comprised of all the basic elements of figure skating. From our toddler classes (beginning at age 3) to specialty classes for the more advance skater, or those adult aged who want to take the sport recreationally, we have a class level for you.
