Beginner Group Skating Lessons in London for Adults
Location: Albert Memorial - opposite the Albert Hall, London W2what3words location: ruled.barn.smooth
Perhaps you skated years ago and want to start again or you are a complete beginner or maybe you taught yourself to skate but can’t stop?
Here at Skatefresh, we don’t believe that learning to skate should be be ‘trial and error’. We aim to get you rolling safely and teach you to skate without falling.
Over the course of your first lesson, you’ll learn to skate forwards, stop and turn, laying the foundation for progress towards safer skating!
What Will You Learn?
- On-grass basics;
How to fall correctly
Skating positions (feet and body)
How to prevent falling
- How to skate absolutely right so that falling is rare.
- Basic Movement – Slow, gentle, controlled and conscious skating.
- Safety position while rolling
- Plough Stop – Your first simple stop.
- Heel Brake Stop – The essential stop for beginners on INLINE skates. If you choose to skate without a brake you will be at a huge disadvantage with only the Plough Stop available.
- Toe Stop Drag Stop – The essential stop for beginners on ROLLER skates. Please make sure you have your toe stoppers in so we can teach you how to use them correctly.
If you are very anxious about skating or very fearful of falling, we recommend a private lesson for your first time on skates. This means you can go at your own pace.
After completing our Beginner group lesson most people with some practice continue to our Improver class, while others may feel that they need more revision with the basic skills and opt to repeat the Beginner class at another time.
PLEASE NOTE: The minimum age for these classes is 14yrs. If you require skate lessons for children below this age, please enquire about private lessons.
What people say about our beginner skating lessons
“Many thanks for the class on Saturday – it was just great. So lovely to be learning something again and she’s such a brilliant teacher – I had a wonderful afternoon and have been boring friends and family about it ever since! I now have the confidence to head out to the park with my 7 yr old, knowing it will be fun and not catastrophic!”
