We love to skate!!

Ladies Silver Blades is in full skate mode for the 2022-2023 season. 2023 will be a very significant year for us as we celebrate and honor our 50th anniversary. Our founding sisters began Ladies Silver Blades in 1973. We are planning many celebrations throughout the year. Please come out and join us as we look forward to the next 50 years!

Our Missionchannel6

To provide a safe learning environment for adult women to pursue their enjoyment for figure skating with a professional coach leading the way.

We skate every Thursday morning, September through mid June, at Suburban Ice – East Lansing from 9:30 am to 11:20 am.

  • 2 skating sessions
    • Level 1 to learn or work on basic skills
    • Level 2 for advanced skills and new techniques
  • Freestyle
  • Team skating

Participate as much or as little as you like. No one is ever pressured to join in the lessons. Some of us take on the challenge of trying new moves; some of us come just to skate with friends. And all of us enjoy the snack table!

  1. I have just now learned of this and am intrigued! Sounds like it would NOT be a good idea to join now though, but in September 2023. Assume I would not HAVE to be in the Show, right?? That would just terrify me. I love to skate, am not very good but would love to do it more regularly AND possibly learn to skate backwards?! A lifelong dream of mine and I’m 72 🙂


    • Hello Kathleen, You are certainly welcome to join the second half of the season which runs from January to early June. Dues would be $39 or you can wait until September 2023. You certainly do not have to be in the show! We welcome you to come and try it, if you like, a couple of times prior to joining. Just pay the rink fee of $5 per skate. Hope to see you there.
