Level 4 (Nearly Intermediates) (Kids & Adults) for all students who have mastered skating backwards, and one foot glides on all edges. Movements will occur on arcs and circles. When people say they want to learn to skate, this is the level they want to achieve. Skating is easy and fluid. Students will progress to learning transitions (stepping from forwards to backwards and backwards to forwards while moving), Pivots, Parallel turns. This is the beginning of artistic movement so will include Skater’ Stride and backwards outside edging.
