Private Lessons & Freestyle Sessions
Skaters of all skill levels who are committed to improving their skills more rapidly will benefit from the additional practice time available during freestyle sessions and from one-on-one or small group private lessons from the Twin Rinks’ professional coaches. Twin Rinks offers more convenient freestyle times year around than any other ice rink in the Metro-New York area, and more than all other Fairfield County rinks combined.
Private lessons offer the opportunity to for the motivated skater to train with experienced, proven coaches in order to master the skills need to participate in competitive events and to earn higher ratings. Instruction is available for freestyle, moves in the field, ice dance, power skating, and test and competition preparation.
All Twin Rinks coaches are private contractors, who set their own fees and schedules directly with students.
