About The Event

Join our first guest teacher at The Skate Sanctuary - Chi Ho.

Chi will share his joy of waving a fan, with flair and pizzaz, so that next time you casually pop a fan out of your bag to stay cool, you'll be looking hot while you're doing it.  Even if you don't want this, throwing a fan around like its a cocktail shaker carries a lot less risk!

We're including one of our RGG fans with your ticket! Though if you do decide you need a fan upgrade, we have some amazingly huge Skater Booty fans in stock for extra snap.

6.30 - 7.30pm Chi's workshop will be off skates. Bring your own fan. Fans are available to purchase in the shop if you don't have your own.

From 7.30 - 9.30pm is an opportunity to strut your stuff in our studio - a skate friendly space.  You can bring your trainers, socks, heels or skates to dance in as you work on perfecting the swoosh of the fan.

Do I need to sign a waiver?

Yes, everyone who skates with Roller Girl Gang needs to sign a waiver.  For sessions at The Skate Sanctuary, you will complete a paper waiver the first time you come. This will be kept securely in digital form for one year, so that you do not need to sign each time. We ask that you let us know if your circumstances change, including  emergency contact details. If you are not skating, you don't need to sign a waiver.

I have a Skate Pass, do I still need to book?

Yes, please still book your spot.  Please remember that if you are not able to make it, our cancellation policy does still apply. For workshops with guest teachers, we are able to offer a 20% discount.

Can I bring my own refreshments?

Yes, no problem! If you forget, we do offer soft drinks and just ask if you need your water bottle refilling.  Please make sure you are not eating and drinking while you skate, that includes chewing gum.

I wear inline skates, can I come?

Yup. We welcome all wheely-booted folks. You may find some skills do not translate directly to inline skates, however we can all do our best.

I don't identify as a girl, can I come?

Absolutely!  Roller Girl Gang was founded and is run by women, with the support of our fantastic volunteer team, to provide better access to roller skating for all genders and identities, especially marginalised folks.

What do I do if I have a problem?

Please speak to one of our skate marshall volunteers, who wear purple t-shirts. If they are unable to help you, they will find our lead skate marshall, who will do their best to assist. We have a Respect policy in place to keep everyone feeling as safe and supported as possible. In case of accidents, we always have at least one trained first aider in the room.

Will the shop be open during class?

As it is within The Skate Sanctuary, it is no problem to collect an order or check out items you may need.  We are not able to support skate fittings during class though.

How do I find the venue?

The Skate Sanctuary is near Aldi on Harrogate road, just off Macaulay Street on one side, and Mabgate on the other.  Access to Mabgate Mills is via Macaulay street and there is free parking at the venue after 5.30pm and at weekends.

Bus stops are on Harrogate Road / A61 (number 42 bus)

The door will be open, so please come in and hang out in the shop area, until class time.
