If you’re looking to switch up your skating styles but don’t know
You probably would recognize derby skating as the rough and tumble roller skating style that Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page exhibit in the movie Whip It. Roller derby is a contact sport mainly played by women, but that doesn’t mean men can’t play too. If you’re looking for a fun workout and team-building exercise to get into, derby is for you! Just don’t forget your pads and helmet, as this style leads to a lot of falling.
If you’ve ever stepped foot on a skateboard or surfboard, you should definitely give vert skating a go. Vert skating can be done with regular or inline skates and typically involves a skate ramp or other skating obstacle of some sort. With vert skating, you can learn tricks similar to those done on skateboards. Once again, pads and a helmet are necessary.
If dance skating could be compared to anything, it would best be compared to figure skating. Similar to figure skating, dance skating is meant to be elegant and graceful. It is often judged by the rhythm, musical timing, and accuracy of the choreographed steps. If you love dancing and roller skating, you should try this!
Jam skating is a form of skating that combines aspects of gymnastics, hip hop dance, and break dance to make for a fun and exciting dance-style skate. Unlike dance skating, jam skating is more casual. If you are more into contemporary and hip-hop-style dancing, jam skating is the perfect hobby to pick up!
