IceFlow is a gentle, yoga-inspired edge class designed specifically for skaters of all skill levels from beginner to professional. Connect leaning, twisting and stretching movements with the breath as we flow with each other across the ice to music.
For every move, every series of steps, a one-foot and tilting or deep leaning position, as well as a two- foot, non-twisting or “Horizon”, option is demonstrated. Every skater is made to feel comfortable and welcome.
Technically, the focus of the class centers on weight transfer, and discovering a full range of motion in every direction. Students also become aware of the skaters around them, respecting and coordinating with all members of the group.
The main goal is to encourage people to discover the joy of skating.
“What makes it great is Elin's low key, encouraging, warm way. And combine that with her talent for getting the point across and her beautiful skating. That's what makes it awesome.” - Fortunata Barone

Elin Schran founded the Boston Ice Theater, a professional ensemble skating company, in 1999, to create new movement possibilities for the ice and to convey the joy of skating to the audience. As a choreographer and director, she designed the company’s numbers and also performed in every show. The ensemble of up to sixteen skaters worked together for five years performing in a wide variety of venues, including the Opening Ceremonies of the 2001 US Figure Skating Championships in Boston, MA.
In 2004 she co-founded Frozen Frog Productions which specializes in developing high-energy shows for audiences all ages. Frozen Frog is known for its polished “wow factor” custom shows for corporate, as well as private clients who want to bring an added element of excitement to their events.
Elin was a coach at Dorothy Hamill’s Fantasy Skating Camp for 5 years, helping adult skaters of many skill levels feel comfortable and confident on the ice while being challenged in a positive way.
"As an adult skater I've always had a hard time learning to flow with my edges, while being soft with my upper body. Elin's approach to skating and ice flow allows me to feel my edges while stretching my lines. I feel longer, more graceful and fluid, and for the first time I feel like I flow over the ice instead of forcing my skating. She's a true gift!" - Marci Nault
