Like the best-tasting pieces of Halloween candy, shoes are better when they have blades attached to them. Strap on sharp slippers with today's Groupon to Kendall Ice Arena. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get open-skate admission and skate rentals for two people (a $20 value).
- For $40, you get six group figure-skating classes, plus entry to public skate sessions with each class (a $82.50 value).
Kendall Ice Arena appeals frost-seeking athletes with daily open-skate sessions and an array of figure-skating lessons. During open skate, two ice carvers of any ages, skill level, and blade sharpness can take advantage of the 200'x58' sheet. Those dropping in on karaoke night, held Thursdays from 6:30–10 p.m., can glide and twirl or belt out renditions of "I Wanna Skate With Somebody."
Those opting for the six classes will learn from a professional teacher in the U.S. Figure Skating basic-skills curriculum. The eight-level program gradually introduces fledgling fancy-feet to the fundamental moves. Each 30-minute session boasts dynamic ice instruction as novices glide through essential techniques, including moving backward, stopping, turning, and carving cursive love poems into freshly zambonied ice. Skaters can suit up in their own skates or rent blades for $3 a day during their lessons, and take advantage of open skate afterward.
Kendall Ice Arena's prices vary throughout the week.
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.
