Our Learn to Skate USA classes are instructed by high-quality industry leaders and professionals with impressive competitive backgrounds.  Our In-House Senior Coaches are also available for private lessons. 

Private lessons are available to all skaters, regardless of age or skill level and are an opportunity for one-on-one learning specific to a skater’s individual needs which will help them learn and progress at an accelerated pace.  

Please note, all in-house coaches are independent contractors.  Private lesson fees are paid directly to the Skating Instructor and do not include ice time or skate rentals, which should be paid at the skate counter prior to taking the ice. Lesson fees vary based upon the Skating Instructor's qualifications and credentials and are set by the instructors individually.  

You may contact our Skating Instructors directly to inquire about private lessons.  We recommend observing our Skating Instructors teaching group classes or private lessons.  

If you are interested in becoming a Learn To Skate instructor or in-house coach please contact Kelley Canning, (208) 608-7718 or via email
