Hot Spot: Transit Pier, across from The Anthem, 960 Wharf Street SW, Washington, DC

Deets: During the colder months, one of the coolest amenities makes an appearance at The Wharf: our ice rink. Come to Transit Pier right outside The Anthem and lace up your skates—bring your own or rent some rink-side—to glide over the ice and enjoy amazing views of the water. While you’re here, treat yourself to some hot beverages and seasonal specialties at our nearby restaurants.

Session 2: February 3, 10, 17, 24
Times: 9:30am-10am or 10:15am-10:45am
Cost: $125 per skater per session (includes 4 lessons and 4 free public skates)

Registration includes:

•Four 30-minute group lessons taught by our professional coaching staff. Classes will be pro-rated for those who sign up after session has started at $35 per lesson.
•Skate rental during lessons
•Evaluation exam on last day of class
•Bonus: four free public skate sessions + skate rentals for each session (a $60 value)

Note: Due to the nature of our uncovered outdoor facility, weather can impact our classes, so we charge a discounted rate as we only offer ONE make-up class due to weather closures. We aim to keep classes on schedule as much as possible, even in light rain and snow. Please keep this in mind when registering.
