AJ Skateworld is the home of the United States Roller Skating’s Artistic Club: SkatersEdge of Greater Virginia. Join our skating club and make friends, have fun, learn new skills, and compete!
We have World and National Champions teaching the group and private lessons.
Our skate classes are designed for skaters of all ages and abilities. Classes are drop-in (no registration required), but class participants must check in (at least 10 minutes before class begins), have skates on and ready to start when class begins. Skaters who are interested in furthering their skills towards competitive Artistic skating will learn basic skills required to pursue their goals. Recreational skaters will learn skills that will increase their enjoyment of skating.
Classes are divided by ability and both Beginner and Intermediate Classes are available. In the Beginner Class, students learn the basic fundamentals of skating, including balance, posture, safety, forward and backward skating, starting and stopping. In the Intermediate Class, students who have mastered the basic skills taught in the beginner class will work on skills that require greater balance and coordination. Students will learn to roll on one foot, both forward and backward, crossing, and turning forward to backward and backward to forward. The class will include an introduction to artistic freestyle.
We have three tracks for skaters that desire to go beyond the basic skills: 1) tests, 2) shows, and 3) competitions. Call us if you are interested in joining our artistic skating club or pursuing any of these tracks.
