Figure skating is a rare combination of art, sport, grace and strength.

If you’re new to figure skating or are picking up your well-worn skates, the IceHouse is the perfect place for you to train and hone your skills.


If you were one of the many who would stay up late to catch the Winter Olympic figure skating competitions, perhaps its finally your chance to get off the sidelines and start making some shapes in the ice.

Our Figure Skating Academy offers lessons for beginner skaters all the way up to National and International competition level. Our experienced instructors work with you to provide optimal training for skaters with all the benefits of their own years of experience and competing.
