Group classes: Families can take a class together so two from the same family is $28 for each person and class lasts an hour. 3-4 from the same family is $28 for each person and the class still only lasts 60 minutes. We do not add 30 minutes for each person beyond the 2nd person. (If you prefer can you can schedule a series of 30 minute classes for each person, and they will be one-on-one with the instructor. This means that 3 people can each have a 30 minute one-on-one class-and we cannot guarantee they occur successive due to our scheduling demands.) This can also be done with friends.
Group rates for Private classes: $60 for one person for an hour, $15 for each additional person (so 60 minutes = $75 for 2 people) Skate & Gear (no helmet) rental is charged for private lessons at $20 per person.
