After mastering the Saturday Learn-2-Sk8 Classes, we encourage enrolling your child in Skating School. The basic fundamentals of the sport of Roller Skating are taught and enhanced. Advanced skating and conditioning skills are also offered, resulting in better self-discipline, teamwork, concentration and coordination. We then use the basics to create art in the form of a public performance, two times per year. Classes to choose from include Dance, Advanced Dance, Drill, Singles and Tiny Tot.
Performances are scheduled in January and June. Each Skating School class will have a choreographed group number, performed in conjunction with solo and guest performances.
Our more advanced members have the opportunity to explore competitive roller skating, chartered through USA Roller Sports Website.
