  • Half-day seminars (3.5 hours): $700
  • Short seminars (1.5 hours; recommended along with private lesson choreography): $250

Since the cost of the seminar is a fixed rate, there is no required minimum number of skaters, but a maximum of 35-40 skaters is recommended.

We also typically offer private lessons for $110/hour before and/or after the seminar to work with students on their own programs and skills, for the maximum artistic experience. The hourly rate is typically paid directly by skaters.
