Its doors open every Monday night for its Icebreakers program, where the professional coaching staff offers free group lessons. Adult beginners can pick up tips and decide if they want to pay for a membership. The atmosphere is fun and supportive. They have a large champion staff (quite literally) of coaches ready to teach in all different styles of skating, from basic to choreography and freestyle.
