Do you live in London? Bored of the gym? Want a new activity? You are in the right place! You’ll love learning to Ice Skate with us!
With decades of experience and a knack for explaining the finer details of learning to Ice Skate, we have enjoyed watching our students progress from beginners through to confident and skilled skaters time and time again.
Learn to Ice Skate and feel the health benefits
There are many perks for our bodies when we Ice Skate. Improved muscle tone, posture and burning calories. You can read all about them here.
Does age matter?
The short answer is no. Olympic competitive Ice Skaters often (though not always) start very young. Around 3 to 5 years old. We may not all be destined to be the next Torvill and Dean or Robin Cousins, but that doesn’t stop us from developing Ice Skating skills that look and feel great, starting at any age. The satisfaction of gaining a new skill is something that most people haven’t felt since they were kids. So every day we skate there’s the opportunity to give your mood a boost (and your ego) by mastering a glide or a turn.
Where do you teach Ice Skating?
We teach Ice Skating exclusively at the Lee Valley Ice Centre in East London (U.K.). The Ice Rink is an international size of 56 metres x 26 metres. There are public transport links nearby, Bus routes 56 and 55 stop just outside the Ice Rink. There are also train links on the Great Eastern link from Stratford to Lea Bridge Station and on the Overground rail at Clapton station.

If you’ve always wanted to learn to Ice Skate, then we’d be so happy to help!
“I've been having lessons with Marika and Vitaliy for a year now and have enjoyed every moment of their tuition. Their passion and patience with this sport by far exceeds my expectations. Marika and Vitaliy have really reinforced my passion for figure skating and helped me with very difficult goals. I really appreciate their vast knowledge and fine details with every single part in ice skating.”
“4 years ago, Marika ran a synchronised skating session and I enjoyed the challenge and variety involved so much that I took on individual lessons. As an adult skater, I appreciate her ability to explain moves in different ways and her endless vat of patience (especially with my inability to understand left and right). Vitaliy teaches me Ice Dance and skates everything with me, pushing me to be faster and neater with steps. Both regularly ask about my goals and tailor my lessons around what I want to achieve but also draw upon their own expertise and make suggestions. Thanks to them, I’ve progressed from a beginner to skating at a senior level. Importantly: – They focus on basics and ensure that my technique is correct to avoid falls and injuries. – They coach all levels and have a good knowledge of the NISA test system. I look forward to every lesson for both the theory and practical aspects and would recommend Marika and Vitaliy to anyone looking to improve their skating.”
“It was easy to book a lesson online and I had good lessons from Marika and Vitaliy. I had been taking Skate UK's Learn to Skate group lessons, but was strugglings with some of the things on the course. The lessons from Marika and Vitaliy helped me to go up to the next level.”
“I had one-to-one lessons with Marika and thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. Marika carries a lot of pride in her work. A caring coach, with a strong attention to detail and technique. Rather than a one size fits all approach, lessons are tailored to skater’s individual’s needs providing a very high-quality coaching. I felt a warm welcome at Lee Valley Ice Centre and have no reservations is recommending the IceSkating.London company.”
“The two excellent coaches at Ice Skating London have helped me realize my dreams in figure skating. They see the unique talent in each skater they work with and aim to foster that talent into real results. Aside from technical aspects, they also aim to make skating fun and each lesson is an enjoyable experience.”
“Marika is a fantastic coach who fully understands the needs and goals of her skaters of all levels and works to develop and prepare skaters to be able to achieve those goals. So grateful for all the help she has given me to progress my skating, would totally recommend!”
“The level of detail and quality on their teaching is something else, their understanding of what is that you are doing wrong and how to put it right is very insightful. They know how to teach mature students, making the classes productive and fun at the same time. I am always looking forward to my bridge group lessons.”
