Figure skating lesson costs
I just started to (finally) attend a skating lesson last Saturday. Since there is no rink in the place where I live, I need to go to a neighbor town to practice.
It was about 2,5 hours by bus and cost me like $40 return. the lesson fee itself was $15 for first-timer and after it costs $50 for one hour.
In total it costs me almost $100 one day and not forgot to say that all the students are mostly 5-13 years old (I'm 23), all their mommys was waiting outside and watching them closely, they were looking at me weirdly (I just feel it though..)
So, I want to get the idea how much it costs in your country/city? so I can figure out whether it will be worth it to continue the lesson.
For my local rink it's $17.50 for each half-hour learn-to-skate class. The cost is the same all the way up to when you complete the basic skills and through the free skate levels. There's a 10% discount for re-enrolling in consecutive two-month sessions, so it benefits people who stick with it. There are adult classes so it's not just kids. Being in the class also means that going to public sessions is a lot cheaper -- to me, the public sessions are where the real "body learning" takes place, in terms of the body getting used to the feel of the moves, rather than the "head learning" instruction in class, so it really helps make things affordable.
