       PRIVATE LESSONS - FIGURE SKATING

 

Please feel free to contact The Rinks Skating Director, John Saitta, if you would like assistance in selecting an instructor (info below)

 

To select a private lesson instructor, you may come in and observe our instructors while teaching and approach them directly or you may ask the skating manager for assistance in choosing an appropriate instructor for you. 

 

All Instructors are independent contractors who use the Anaheim ICE facility to teach private lessons and; therefore, set their own schedules, lesson fees and policies. 

 

Private lessons fees are paid directly to the Instructor and do not include ice time or skate rental.  It is recommended that you arrange a lesson on the same day as your group class, since the public session and skates are included as part of your Learn to Skate package. 

 

Below you will find a list of our private lesson instructors, a brief biography of their background and a voicemail number where they can be reached.  If you would like John Saitta, the skating manager, to assist you in selecting an instructor, he can be reached at (714) 518-3212 or via email jsaitta@the-rinks.com
