Grab your skates and get ready to roll!
Roller skating has experienced a huge surge in popularity thanks to COVID-19 and more people than ever are becoming obsessed with 8 wheeled shoes. While watching skating tutorials online can be helpful, learning in-person from a professional instructor is the easiest and fastest way to up your skating game!
During this workshop, you’ll learn a variety of fun roller dance moves and choreography geared towards beginner to intermediate level roller skaters. Each move will be broken down so that you fully understand the movement and balance required and all questions are welcomed! We’ll also work on how to transition smoothly from one movement to the next.
Along with learning choreography and fun moves, you’ll also learn a ton of tips and tricks to help make your skating look effortless and stylish at the same time. This will also be an excellent opportunity to ask questions about anything skating-related!
This workshop will be taught by SkateIA Certified Instructor and roller skating pro, @SutherlandSkates.

Water – We’ll be skating outside, so please be sure to hydrate.
