To be honest, I've never thought about trying to learn curling because, to be frank, I trip over my own feet walking on dry, not covered in ice land. So, purposefully going onto the ice is something I avoid.
However, if you've seen competitive curling and though, "Yeah I could do that," you can test that theory at Kalamazoo Curling Club.
The Kalamazoo Curling Club offers lessons for people of various ages. According to their website, they typically teach those in their 20's - 40's. But, they can accommodate those who are older or as young as 12,

Classes are available for individuals or small groups. If you decide to get a group together, the Kalamazoo Curling Club recommends gathering at least 4 people. Registration is currently open according to their latest Facebook post:
As well, year long memberships are available. Visit their website here.
