A US Figure Skating

Learn to Skate Program

Group lessons taught by experienced skating professionals


Learn the basic skills of ice skating. Our professional instructors excel in teaching all ages and abilities. The student to teacher ratio is kept low so that each skater gets the attention they need to advance through the levels and continue learning.

Classes are currently Monday and Thursday evening and Saturday morning.

We offer the US Figure Skating Learn To Skate curriculum. New skaters will be evaluated on the first day of class. Skaters are able to pass tests throughout the session and are encouraged to progress at their own pace.

Skaters who want private lessons or who are interested to competitive or advanced recreational figure skating are encouraged to take lessons with a skating professional. Any of our skating instructors can answer questions and many offer private lessons. See the full list of our professional staff on our Coaches page.

Skaters enrolled in the Learn To Skate program may participate in our annual ice show and are encouraged to try our Summer Skate competition. Many Figure Skating Club of Minneapolis skaters who began with group lessons now participate in competitions and skate with one of our synchronized skating teams.


Join the fun! Classes are ongoing throughout the year.
