Tonight my friends Atalanta, Boosh and I dropped in on the official opening night of Lola Staar’s Dreamland Roller Rink in Coney Island, Brooklyn. It was a really fun crowd, great music to skate to, and awesome atmosphere being right by the beach in a historic old building on the boardwalk.
New York doesn’t get much better than this.
We ran into fellow swing dancer Albert, who is an amazing skate dancer (check this video of him). He tried to show me some basic moves, which were ridiculously hard for me. I tried to blame the fact that I was on roller-blades while he had quads on, but I think skate dancing is just really really hard to do well. Someday I think it would be cool to get some quads and learn how to do it properly.
Here’s some more videos of a very fun night:
Love that lady in the purple top. So smooth.
