Polar Ice Peoria instructs ice-lovers of all ages and experience levels in the fundamentals of frozen footwork. During weekly half-hour lessons, students hone the skills necessary to become hockey players, figure skaters, or Zamboni impersonators. Under the watchful eye of instructors belonging to the Professional Skaters Association, blade-bearing children ages 3–6 can hit the ice for elementary education in the Snowplow Sam program. Students ages 7 and up can glide gracefully upward through basic and free-skate level courses, progressing from fundamental moves like forward- and backward-stroking to advanced spins, jumps, jives, and wails. Acknowledging that one can never be too prepared for the next Ice Age, Polar Ice Peoria also invites adults to enhance their balance and coordination while gaining valuable instruction on polar-bear evasion techniques.
