Learn the basics of figure skating on Avalon’s picturesque outdoor rink in Alpharetta. They will teach you how to get started: gliding across the ice forward and backward, one-foot glides, stopping, the proper way to fall and get up, and beginning jumps and spins. If you are more advanced, they can teach more sophisticated skills. Private lessons, by appointment, are taught by professional figure skating coaches (members of the Professional Skaters Association and U.S. Figure Skating) and follow U.S. Figure Skating’s Basic Skills Curriculum. Group lessons, no appointment necessary, are held on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. All lesson fees include coach fees, rental skates, and extra skating time to practice your newly acquired skills. To inquire about the private lessons, email the skating coach. You can skate daily through Jan. 21; the times vary for each day, and change on holidays. 400 Avalon Blvd., Alpharetta. $18 for general admission, $14 for children (9 and under) Rental skates are included with admission.
