SOLD OUT! – RHYTHM ROLLER SKATING: 2: 15 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. This 4 week session will introduce you to the exciting world of dancing on roller skates. You will learn the building blocks of all roller skate dance moves; stepping, rolling and turning. In these sessions we will go through basic dance moves as well as more advanced combinations. The key goal will be to train the basic moves intensively, so that both new as well as experienced skaters will benefit so that they can evolve their own personal dance style.
Skaters should be comfortable balancing on roller skates. For absolute beginners, Roller Skating 101 is a prerequisite.
