About The Event

The Skate Sanctuary is a studio, designed for developing your roller dance skills.  This could happen on or off skates - or a mixture of the two! 

We encourage skaters using the space to connect.

We strongly suggest you pre-booking to avoid disappointment.

What is a 'stepper'? We are referring to a dancer wearing shoes rather than skates. This can be very helpful to support you to understand how your body moves before you try the same movement with skates on.

There will be background music playing.  If you are working on something specific, you may wish to bring your own headphones, but please ensure you are aware of others around you.

Drinking water is available and we have a selection of hot and cold refreshments for sale.

Skate Hire

Skate hire is available from the front desk for £2 per session - you can pay by cash or card


Our practise sessions are intended for participants (in shoes or skates).  We only have space for one spectator per participant. At busy times, spectators will need to purchase a ticket. Spectators must remain in designated seating or rest areas.

Cancellation / Reschedule

We are happy to re-arrange or refund your session, providing you let us know at least 24 hours in advance of your session time. You can email or call 07479 430404.

Video Etiquette

We are happy for skaters to take progress video for their personal reflection, however we ask you keep filming to a minimum.  If you wish to film for extended periods of time, consider booking the studio privately. 

Getting to The Skate Sanctuary

On foot / public transport to Leeds city centre

We are located a 10 minute walk from Leeds city bus station and the Yorkshire Playhouse.  Facing the playhouse, turn left and walk past Leeds City College, under the painted bridge.  You will find yourself at the end of Mabgate.  Walk to the other end of Mabgate, past The Hope Foundry on the left and turn right obto Skinner Lane.  Turn right again onto Macaulay Street and you will see the large open gate and downward slope to Mabgate Mills on your right.  The Skate Sanctuary is the first building on your left.  Look for our signs on the windows and door.

There are extensive roadworks on the A61 Regent Street at the moment, so if you are driving through Leeds city centre, please allow additional time. 

There is free parking on-site after 5.30pm. Please note the car park spaces are tight and you may prefer to park on Macaulay street (also free) and walk round.

The car park operates a one-way system. To exit, use the right hand corner gates. Approach slowly and wait for the sensor to open the gates, to exit onto Mabgate.

About The Skate Sanctuary

There are gender neutral toilets on site.

We have a small kitchenette with a limited selection of hot drinks and water available for free. Please bring refillable bottles or hot cups. If you use a disposable cup, we would appreciate a pay-as-you-feel contribution. There are some soft drinks for sale.
