Private Lessons

Take Your Skating To The Next Level

A private lesson is a great way to get one on one instruction for either the recreational or competitive skater.

Private Lessons can be taken in conjunction with the Learn to Skate Classes to help master the skills from each class or can be taken independently if you are wanting to advance your skills.

Private lessons are held on public or freestyle sessions or freestyle sessions.

I am a former competitive figure skater from Texas competing all the way through the senior level. I traveled all over the country for competitions and had the ability to train under national and international Olympians. In addition to being PSA and US Figure Skating certified, I am a Senior Gold Medalist in both freestyle and moves in the field. My teaching style is very hands-on and visual. However, I adapt my teaching style based on my students’ learning styles! My ultimate goal in teaching skating is to share my love and passion for the sport with anyone who wants to learn.
