Beginner Group Skating Lessons in London for Adults

“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!”
– Samantha (42)
