Nashville Skating Academy
Nashville Skating Academy’s staff of experienced skating instructors helps pupils perfect their gliding form year-round with an indoor rink. Though the teaching approach varies based on skaters’ age and experience, the skating curriculum begins with classes that focus on basic balance and posture before pupils advance to more challenging material in later classes, such as hockey-specific skills, figure-skating jumps, and how to parallel-park a zamboni.
Nashville Skating Academy strives to assist all levels of skaters in achieving their personal goals, from recreational skating to competition at national and international events. Our organization is dedicated to promoting and developing the sport of ice skating in Nashville and surrounding counties, by providing learn to ice skate and figure skating training opportunities.
