Skillbuilders --the next step from Learn to Skate

Finished your first two Learn to Skate badges? Great! You can keep on going in Learn to Skate for as long as you want, with many more skills to learn.  But, if you see that figure skating is your passion (or want to see if it is), consider our Skillbuilders class that immediately follows our Thursday Learn to Skate class.   Skillbuilders is a smaller class, focused solely on figure skating skills. Skillbuilders members will be able to be part of a group performance in our holiday and spring shows. More information is available here: https://www.hersheyfigureskating.org/freeskate
