WIA Skating Academy

Take your skating to the next level!

The WIA Skating Academy program is designed to teach skaters skills at a faster pace in a group lesson environment. It’s a great way to transition from basic skills to figure skating! We offer advanced work on jumps, spins and artistry on ice.

Check out our 2022-23 Fall brochure!

We’re now offering Off-Ice Sessions! (Only for Fast Track and WIA Academy skaters). The Off-ice sessions are 30 mins long and designed to focus on cardio, core and flexibility & jump techniques. Check out our Fall Off-Ice Brochure!

We offer 50 minute of instruction for on-ice classes, followed by a FREE 20-minute free-skate session to practice what you’ve learned! Join us on Thursday’s, Sunday’s, or BOTH and save! Skaters must be registered with Learn to Skate USA.  Register/Renew Learn to Skate Membership.
