Figure skating teaches several physical skills, including balance, coordination, endurance and flexibility. It also teaches several life skills such as confidence and poise. Skating can be a life-long passion, whether enjoying it as weekend recreation, pursuing a coaching career or serving as a competition judge.

The Albert Lea club holds lessons, taught by skating professionals, Mondays and Wednesday at the City Arena with extra practice time available. The season runs September through March, ending with the annual show. This season’s show, “Planes, Trains and Blades,” will be held March 23-24.
