We also want to make choreography and contemporary skating education accessible to coaches and adults around the globe. Join us for free in the summer to learn about a variety of topics related to artistic skating, and/or join us in the winter to take a “deep dive” into one specific artistic skating or choreographic topic. See below for more details on both of our Virtual Workshop Series options.
