Roller Dance Owl with Daya – Sit Still Look Pretty and guest Mo Sanders

The “Roller Skating Fun” summer 2018 project has been created from our love and passion for roller skating. We skate in different styles, we dance, and we play various games on roller skates. We skate alone, with partners, and in groups. We skate slalom – around cones and doing other tricks.
Roller skating keeps us creative, healthy and happy. Roller skating is like a rainbow in the sky – colorful and magical. Just try it!
Lana and the skate crew.

Roller Dance Owls in 3M Wonder Commercial Shoot

It was so exciting when one of the foreign producers contacted me and invited us to participate in Commercial Shoot with my students. Not everyone can skate hard – the Roller dance Owls can! On Tuesday, March 13th we had a Shoot and skated non stop for 5 hours. The kids were so tired, but did their best! Good job everyone! I am so proud and so happy for my Roller Owls. They had a great experience and they got their first pay cheque. I am so grateful to my students and their parents for their trust and belief in me, for being part of RDO. 

Get ready! Our roller adventure is going to be fascinating!

For a first time Roller Dance Owls in Commercial shoot

Roller Dance Owl students had an audition for a 🎥Commercial a week ago. I am so happy and so proud of them! My 8 students (6 kids and 2 adults) are going to a shoot in the Commercial. Yes, life is better on roller skates! 
PS. We have a shooting on Tuesday, March 13, so we have no classes on that day.

With love, Lana Shahar.
