Early on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, from October through April of each year, at the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center, Olympic figure skater and ice skating coach JoJo Starbuck gives a special class geared especially for adult ice skaters.  

The photos in this gallery were taken by the class's "official photographer" Robyn Roth-Moise, who has skated at The Rink at the Rock since she was a very little girl.  Roth-Moise's photos, taken during About.com's Figure Skating Expert JO ANN Schneider Farris's visit to the class on Thursday, October 15, 2015, capture the joy the class participants feel during "JoJo's Cool Workout!"

It is important to bend your knees when you skate.  In this photo, Olympic figure skater JoJo Starbuck teaches the skaters in her class to bend their knees before doing forward swizzles across the ice.  Swizzles are a good way to feel the ice under your blades when you first take to the ice and help in warming up one's body.
