Commenting on the skating rink, Ms. Julia Ikonnikova, the skating coach at the mall and show organizer with Skating First, said, “Skating is one of the most relaxing yet invigorating forms of sport. The best time to pick up this sport is while still young. We have been absolutely amazed by the skills and enthusiasm shown by the kids who have been training with us this month. Who would have thought a desert land could produce such remarkable skaters.”

The skating trainers, having performed and competed at numerous international platforms, come with a vast experience of skating. With everyday sessions and courses on skating offered by the professional team of trainers, the mall also offers an opportunity to young learners to become experts at skating and perform across Dubai.
