This spacious indoor rink operates even when all the ice has melted at Rockefeller Plaza. Kids can strap on their skates year-round, beginners learning basic skills like edge work, stroking and turns and advanced skaters practicing graceful spins, jumps and more fancy footwork. Skate School students dress in costume and perform choreographed routines that they’ve practiced throughout the year during the annual Skating Spectacular in June. Young NHL hopefuls can opt for the center’s USA Hockey Learn to Skate program, which helps them find their balance through athletic drills. Ages 5 and up.
