Welcome to Lake Placid Adult Figure Skating!


Both the adult skating weekend and the adult skating week will offer a combination of on-ice practice sessions, on-ice group classes, off-ice group classes, awesome coaches and fun social activities!


Our June weekend will begin on Thursday night with a welcome party and warm-up skating session, while the August week will kick off on Sunday night. After that, it’s full swing ahead with sessions and classes from morning until night. 


Generally, we offer at least 6 hours of on-ice sessions and 10 on-ice classes per day.  On-ice classes cover all aspects of skating such as basic skating technique, turns, jumps, spins, ice dance technique and movement. Times are based on ice and instructor availability.  Several off-ice group classes are also available. Off-ice classes may include yoga, ballet, zumba, fitness, stretch and trampoline.

If you're still deciding whether or not to come, let some other adults tell you about their experiences in their own words:

"Love love love coming to Adult Week! Coaches are the very best, so encouraging, so talented. Very pleased with the effort to make us feel welcome. Ice was exceptional." Rosemary G.

"Love the camaraderie, the support from everyone, skaters and coaches, Love Lake Placid - the views of the lake and mountains - and the people- everyone is friendly and makes you feel welcome." Ingrid B.

"The Lake Placid Experience is Awesome!" Grace D.

On-Ice Group Classes:
On ice classes are scheduled to supplement your learning experience, expose you to a variety of teaching styles and allow you to choose what you want to work on. The schedule of classes will depend on ice and instructor availability. We do the best we can to offer a variety of classes each day, but due to other commitments of instructors and available ice time that may not always be possible. There are generally 6-10 classes offered per day.

The following is a list of classes offered in the past and expected to be offered again this year:
Basics of Skating
Moves in the Field
Creative Movement
Choreography & Style

Off-Ice Group Classes:
The following is a tentative list of group classes that may be available. All off-ice group classes are 45 minutes in length.
