Private Lessons

The following list of instructors available for private lessons was compiled through the Westport Parks and Recreation Department and consists of the certified, USFSA (United States Figure Skating Association) instructors that the Department uses to run their lessons. Some of our instructors are also certified through the Professional Skaters Association and USA Hockey.
