Learn to Figure Skate

(this class was formerly called Aspire)

A class for figure skaters who may just be learning to skate and also for those who are looking to advance their current figure skating skills.  

Our Learn to Figure Skate class provides a solid skating foundation through proper skill development. Our class offers skaters a safe and supportive small group training environment.  This program is great for skaters of all levels from those learning to figure skate to those looking to advance their current figure skating skills.  

  • This class is open to skaters ages 4 - adult.

  • Adults will be grouped together.

  • First time skaters are welcome but need to be able to stand up on skates by themselves (not needing to be held up or use the boards to stay standing.)  

  • Registration includes LTS membership with the USFSA (valid until June 30, 2023

Bring your own figure skates.  No hockey skates allowed.

Please note that we ask that you wear figure skates only.  Hockey skates do not have the same kind of blades and are not meant for learning figure skating moves, jumps and spins.  We want everyone to be successful, safe and have fun learning to figure skate.

*Learn to Figure Skate class members do not need to be a member of the GFSC to participate.

*No make-ups for missed classes.  No refunds.
