I've been toying with learning roller, but the lessons are scheduled the exact time public ice is held so I'm stuck.

Why quads and not pic-skates?  As I understand the latter are much much more like blades making the transition pretty smooth.

In addition to PIC skates, which I use, also take a look at Snow White brand inlines...

I've read good things about them.

Inline figure skates look like fun but at these prices I need to stick to my old RollerBlades for exercise and work on moves on the ice.

I like Snow White's videos of basic moves.
