Register for Beginner 1 Classes
About Beginner - 1 Classes: (Kids & Adults) For all new students to the skate school regardless of their current skating ability.

This class is for all students who are new to Skate Journeys. EVERYONE must take this class, although it will be adjusted for those who are self-taught or have other experience skating. Because this is a private lesson we will teach the Beginner-1 class at your level. For those who can skate (simply move forward) we review quickly the edges, four main elements of all skate moves, and review braking and other basic fundamentals. For BRAND NEW BEGINNER-1 students we provide a complete introduction to skating, including the Ready Position, the elements of falling (without falling onto our knees) the four elements of all moves, V-Walk, Basic Stride, and Stopping. How far along a student moves is based on their own ability.
