Good News: Figure skating lessons

Learning to figure skate

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - January is National Figure Skating Month. Charlotte Motor Speedway just so happens to have an ice skating rink nearby it, so I decided to give it a shot.

As CMS communications specialist and former figure skater Jen Hebert explained, ice skating and figure skating are two quite different things. She took me out on the ice for a quick lesson and possibly the fastest learner ever, emerged.

Check out the video for some hip-busting action.

And also check out the skating rink for yourself:

Coca-Cola Ice Rink at zMAX Dragway

Open 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday through Jan. 21.

It's $12 to skate, which includes skate rental, and you can receive $2 off by presenting a Coca-Cola product at the gate.
