Learn to Skate

Learn to Skate

Learning to roller skate is a fun and safe activity that can lead to skaters enjoying the sport recreationally, or developing their skills to a point where they can be competitive in a variety of roller sports - from artistic skating to roller hockey and speed skating, or roller derby. As you progress in confidence and ability, we will support you in progressing to the exciting and athletic discipline of artistic roller skating.

 

Twin City Skate offers Learn to Skate classes that are aligned with SkateAUSTRALIA's official 'SkateStars' program - a progressive and comprehensive four-level curriculum designed to cater for all roller sports.

 

Our Level 0-1 classes are designed for skaters to start as absolute beginners, or those with limited skating skill. We will teach you all the basics you need to balance, roll, stop, fall safely, and eventually, not fall anywhere near as often! Lessons are progressive, so it is best not to miss the start of term.

As your skills progress you will move through the levels of the 'SkateStars' program to a more challenging class. These classes will also suit the confident recreational skater looking for a refresher course or who have not previously participated in any formal classes. Please see course descriptions for requisite skills on our Bookings page.

Artistic Roller Skating

Artistic Roller Skating

Artistic roller skating is a dynamic roller sport that combines strength and skill with elegance and grace. It is similar to the Olympic sport of figure skating, but as it is performed on roller skates, it allows skaters more flexibility in the skills they can perform. It is also a more accessible sport than ice skating as it can be practised on wooden floors, such as indoor basketball courts. Twin City Skate offers artistic skating classes to skaters from 8 years onwards who have completed Learn to Skate Level 4 and who aspire to compete in SkateNSW artistic Free Skating competition.

 

SkateNSW offers 'Rising Stars' competition as an accessible way for skaters who have completed the Learn to Skate ('Skate Stars') program to commence their competitive pathway in the sport. It is designed as a Development Stream (or entry level) for participation and is divided into five levels for Free Skating. Each level requires participants to attempt a set number of skills. Please see required elements for each class on our Bookings page.

 

Whilst all skaters can be supported to build towards competing in the various disciplines of the sport, artistic classes are also perfect for those who just enjoy the freedom of roller skating and learning new things, and want to work towards becoming “great roller skaters”.

Ages 8 years to adults

Skate Fit*

Skate Fit is a fitness class on wheels! Our classes are designed for teens and adults with proficient skating skills who want an energetic and exciting session on their skates.

 

Our 45 minute classes will get you dancing and sweating, and building your strength, fitness, flexibility and skating skills.

 

Skate Fit classes are also an excellent way for skaters participating in our artistic lessons to continue to improve their strength and fitness, and try out the new skills they have learnt in more technical classes.

Roller Dance

Dance Jam Roller Dance^

Ever pictured yourself as Olivia Newton-John in 'Xanadu'?  Patrick Swayze in 'Skatetown, USA'? Jessica Simpson in 'A Public Affair' or Pink in 'Never Gonna Not Dance Again'? Then get your skates on and come dance!

 

In 1970s America the popular rise of both disco and roller skating coincided to create one of the most funky ways to get fit and have fun. Roller disco is the place where music, dance, skating, soul and fashion meet and thrive. Our Dance Jam Roller Dance classes will teach you the basics of roller disco dance, and progress through to more advanced moves for capable skaters.

 

If you: 

- can skate forwards with confidence

- don't fall too frequently

- love to skate

- love to dance

 

Then our Dance Jam Roller Dance classes are made for you!
