ROLLER DANCE WORKSHOPS WITH CHERRI BLASTER!
A bit about Cherri Blaster from Lethbridge Roller Skate:
Cherri started her skating career in roller derby in 2010 and evolved into roller dance when she retired from the sport in 2017. Today, she offers private and group lessons through Roller Skate Lethbridge, teaches roller dance online through Roller Skate Victoria and coaches with the Lethbridge Roller Derby Guild. Cherri teaches “micro-skills” to help skaters build confidence and technique as they work to master new moves. These micro-skills improve balance and muscle memory, which are essential to improve as a skilled all-around skater.
