Got your own skates? Want to keep improving and learning new skills on a week-by-week basis?

Join us for a fun, one-hour class. You'll learn new skills that can include cross overs, how to transition from forwards to backwards, how to spin, jump and pivot on your skates. Each class will focus on different skills varying from fun artistic tricks to jam skating moves. You'll be in a safe and inclusive indoor space with a fun soundtrack and laughs - we’re not called Roll Happy for nothing ;)

    If you haven't replaced or removed any parts of your skates they will meet the above requirements.
