After you’ve completed the starter class, these are your next levels:
The complete schedule is below the descriptions 

Pre-Alpha – Delta

Skaters learn the fundamentals outlined in the Ice Skating Institute skating levels along with additional elements to add some fun to each skating level.

Freestyle 1- 10

After the Delta level, skaters have the opportunity to participate in our Freestyle classes. These classes are designed for skaters who are looking to advance their skills with spins, footwork, spirals, turns and single/double jumps.

Stroking Classes

These courses are not only stamina and endurance classes but, will also help to produce quicker turns, faster speed and great balance. 

Harness Jump Classes

Designed for skaters at the Freestyle #4 level and above; This class gives skaters the opportunity to try different jumps (Axel and Double Jumps) while being supported by the overhead harness.  This is a great class to take away the fear of falling on advanced jumps.

Adult Dance/Moves In the Field

If you love the true beauty of gliding across the ice while skating to music then Dance Class is for you!  This is one of the more advanced classes we offer Adult skaters along with the Moves In The Field class which works on your edge and turning skills. 

Jump Start

Jump Start is a stepping stone into the United States Figure Skating competition system which is the most competitive part of the figure skating program. Skaters much have permission from their private skating instructor to be able to participate in this class.
