this video is OLD! but the points are SOUND! Watch it, and ALWAYS remember to practice on a smooth surface, and wear helmet, elbow pads, wrist guards and knee pads! NOT kidding!

Okay so I'm late. I wish I could adition for aproduction of starlight express aroud the area I live in. I have been doing atistic roller skating since I was 8 and would love to perorm in it. *sigh*

The best place to learn for others who may be wondering is your local centre. Ours was shut down due to the owners not having the money to continue but most have beginners classes and work their way up. Sometimes its really easy dependingon how deterined you are. I got from beginner to star 4 in a year and after about 3 monhs in star 4 I got to star 5 which is the highest level. It is really easy to pick up on when you get real intructors helping you. :D
