Summer Dreams

I Can Excel (ICE)


I Can Excel (ICE) FSH’s premiere after-school program that improves student academics, encourages active lifestyles, and strengthens leadership skills in girls ages 6-18.

Summer Dreams


Students enjoy a daily variety of academic enrichment classes and cultural trips followed by skating instruction, participating in a total of 35 hours per week.

Synchronized Skating


Figure Skating in Harlem introduced Harlem Ice Synchronized Skating in 2006 to help students perfect new skills on the ice and continue to learn invaluable lessons in leadership & teamwork.

Summer Dreams

To keep our girls active, Figure Skating in Harlem (FSH) created the popular Summer Dreams program, which supports each child’s academic and fitness goals. Summer Dreams runs for 4 weeks, Monday through Thursday from 10am-6pm, with the potential to opt-in for early drop-off programming starting at 8:30am daily.

Students enjoy a daily variety of academic enrichment classes and cultural trips followed by skating instruction at the participating rinks in the city.

"Great summer program. My daughter loves going. Reading, writing, STEM, skating, and friendships ... couldn't ask for more.”


Staying Active

Our academic classes give students a competitive edge when returning to school as they hone their skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), public speaking, writing, health, and nutrition.

Students who are registered with FSH for the summer can also take advantage of our Super Skating Sundays, which provides additional opportunities to hone their skills on the ice. Details about this program will be shared with families in June.
