Adult ice skating lessons

Our lessons follow the British Ice Skating (formerly NISA) approved Skate UK programme.
Lessons will run every week for 30 minutes per lesson in the Riverside ice rink. You'll be in a small, friendly class of people with a similar ability, aged 16 and over. Our expert teachers will guide you through your lessons, while you make new friends in a community environment.
