ROLLERWAYS Short Documentary

ROLLERWAYS is a short documentary that surveys the LA roller skating scene and those who populate it. Ranging from the nostalgia of the rink and its charming organ music to the down-and-dirty scene of the roller derby, this film reveals universal truths that should permeate any scene in any city: find your passions, show love to others, live in the present, believe in yourself, and just don’t forget to have a good time. John C. Reilly and Snoop Dogg (aka “DJ Snoopadelic”) make guest appearances along the way.

World on Wheels is closing :-(

We (vbsk8dancers) are saddened over the announcement that WOW is closing. It is a huge loss to our sk8 community and leaves us no rinks in Los Angeles.  We realize that now one of the only sk8 venues now left in Los Angeles is Venice Beach so we would like to cordially invite all of the L A sk8ers to join the skating at Venice Beach Skate Dance Plaza.   It is a fun and friendly scene… and we have a DJ & sk8 most Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

With the closing of WOW perhaps it is time for the entire sk8 community of Los Angeles to come together and come up with some future plan to expand our sk8 community?  We welcome any suggestions as to how we can help.

Also, if you are not on our email list already, we suggest you go to the “Join Us” page to add get on our email list so you may receive the latest information about the music schedule.

Here is an article from the Los Angeles Times about the closing of World on Wheels which ran on June 22, 2013:
