Yes and no. Rollerblades teach you balance but the balance required to ice skate is different. Ice skating requires greater balance because the blade is smaller. Also the stopping techniques are different to, but if you are a quick learner you will be able to transition easily from Rollerblades an concrete to ice skates and ice.
