Learn To Skate
Our nationally-certified skating instructors make the Learn To Skate USA lesson curriculum easy and fun. Lessons are conducted using engaging games and activities to help students understand the fundamentals of balance and movement on the ice. Whether their goal is to enjoy the recreational benefits of ice skating, learn how to play ice hockey or reach Olympic fame, this is the place to start.

Learn To Power Skate
The hockey player who masters their edges will command the ice. Join our specialized power skating coaching team, who are also Body Zone Learn To Skate instructors, to build this technique with intense 30-minute sessions focused on balance, strength, agility and power.

Meet Stacy Grebe, Body Zone’s Director of Skating Programs
Stacy has been a Body Zone Learn To Skate instructor since 2006, but her love for skating began long before that when as a young girl she herself enrolled in a Learn to Skate program. She enjoyed it so much that she began taking private lessons and went on to compete and medal in local and regional competitions.

After taking a short break while at college, she came back to the area and began skating again and working with Body Zone’s Learn To Skate program. Stacy specializes in teaching students of all ages the basic skills of skating. According to Stacy, “I’m blessed that I can share my love of the sport with our community and help build key skills while having fun and building confidence. Nothing is more rewarding than celebrating your students’ wins and successes and seeing the joy on their faces when they master a new skill.”

Stacy has a degree in Graphic Communications from Pennsylvania College of Technology and a strong background in layout/design, photography and wayfinding. When she’s not on the ice, she enjoys spending time with her family, gardening and has a passion for health and fitness.
