Hi, I’m Daniil Timin.
I am a figure skating coach and an ice skating instructor from Russia. I offer private skating lessons in the northern Chicago suburbs and Pleasant Prairie/Kenosha, WI.
I work with skaters of all levels whether you are a beginner, an adult skater, or a competitive novice, junior or senior level athlete. Available as a primary or secondary coach.
I have over 20 years of experience as a competitive figure skater in Russia, ice shows performer on Disney on Ice and Willy Bietak Productions on Royal Caribbean cruise ships as well as a figure skating coach. You can find out more information about myself, my skating career, and coaching philosophy here.
I am offering “Learn to skate” group classes and private ice skating lessons in Pleasant Prairie, WI/Kenosha area as well as in the Chicago’s northern suburbs at the following rinks:
- Pleasant Prairie RecPlex – Pleasant Prairie skating school;
- Glacier Ice Arena in Vernon Hills, IL;
- Twin Rinks Ice Pavillion in Buffalo Grove, IL;
- Centennial Ice Arena in Highland Park, IL.
The duration of the private skating lessons is 30 minutes or 1 hour long. I am currently running a promotion – the first 30-minute private lesson is complimentary for the new skaters! This offer is for a limited time only!
My area of specialization is:
- single freestyle skating;
- jumping technique;
- working on deeper edges, stroking, basic skating skills;
- moves in the field;
- step sequence choreography;
- choreographing figure skating routines;
- off-ice (jump rotations technique, spinner), conditioning training.
I like to work by setting realistic goals based on a skater’s current skill level and from there to take steps towards what you are seeking to achieve in practice. Together, we will make your skating dreams come true! I believe besides working on required technical elements, jumps and spins, it’s just as important to continue improving skating skills and work on deeper edges, balanced, controlled and faster glide.
If you have any questions or are interested in private lessons, please contact Daniil at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (708) 655-97-22.
See you soon at the rink! Happy skating!
