What You'll Get
Skating on a pond is dangerous, especially if the ice is thin or littered with napping babies. Upgrade to indoor-arena, baby-free ice-skating with today's Groupon: for $40, you get six group skating classes and entry to public skating after class at Kendall Ice Arena on Hammocks Boulevard (an $82.50 value). Skate rental is not included and is an additional $3 per lesson (an $18 additional expense over six lessons).
Kendall Ice Arena's basic skills class features professional teachers and a variety of class times for all ages. Wobbly tots, twinkle-toed teens, and agile adults can learn the techniques of skating forward and backward, crossovers, transitional turns, speedy maneuvers, and stopping without the aid of walls or gravity. Each 30-minute lesson's small group setting ensures that skaters will stockpile skills at the fastest possible rate until they're capable of rocketing across the ice like an über-smooth bald man barreling down a well-oiled playground slide. Join classmates and scarf-wrapped strangers in the public skate sessions following your instruction time.
- You get a sense of accomplishment when you make it around the rink a few times without falling. – Michelle C., Yelp
- This is very reminiscent (to me) of the roller skating rinks in the Midwest where I grew up. In all, it was a nice time for our daughter, and we are surely coming back. – Carla L., Yelp

About Kendall Ice Arena
During public sessions inside the massive Kendall Ice Arena, the rink fills up with families, first dates, and other glide-enthusiasts. There, skaters of all skill levels glide side-by-side—sometimes enhanced by music from live DJs—after which they can refuel by grabbing refreshments at the snack bar. And during camps, skaters from across the blade-running spectrum can hone their skills in programs for hockey players, figure skaters, and beginners just finding their ice legs.
