Ice is nothing more than water that won't let people swim in it. Subvert stubborn substances by strapping on a set of skates with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a seven-week ice-skating class and skate rental at Floyd Hall Arena, located on the campus of Montclair State University in Little Falls (a $133 value).
Since opening in 1998, the state-of-the-art indoor pond at Floyd Hall Arena has hosted more than a dozen NHL teams and countless quantities of avid skaters young and old. Scan the smooth-skating schedule of classes available for ice gliders of all ages and skill levels, from worrywart wall huggers to surefooted half-human, half-zamboni hybrids.
Children begin at the tot level, and novices 7 years and older start with the prealpha class, which progresses from learning about basic balance to practicing backward skating, spins, and jumps. With skate rental included, all students can practice their figural flows and improve their foot-cursive penmanship. Floyd Hall will offer an upcoming series of springtime classes for Groupon buyers.
