SKATESPACE was founded by KOZMIC SKATER (Chloé Seyrès): "An all-rounder on wheels for almost 25 years, today I'm a movement artist specializing in rollerdance, most recently on contract with Cirque du Soleil. A former international athlete in my past life, 4x world champion in slalom and former member of the French roller derby team, I'm also a BIF and ICP certified coach and have been teaching to skating lovers since 2003. The aim of SKATESPACE is to share my passion and the freedom you feel as soon as you’re on wheels. I also invite collaborators to teach in this space, in order to offer access to a multitude of viewpoints through their disciplines and styles!"

1) ROLLERSKILLS workshops, focusing on techniques for beginners and more advanced skaters;
2) ROLLERDANCE classes for all levels;
3) OPEN JAMS every Wednesday – free practices for socializing and rolling to groovy music!

Roller skating, Street skating, Roller derby.

I have always loved skating, inline, quads, ice, and skateboarding. In 2014 I joined a local roller derby team and became hooked. 7 years ago I moved to Montreal in hopes of playing for the Montreal New Skids on the Block (Montreal’s Travel Team). Fast forward to now, I have been skating with the Skids since 2018, along with coaching home teams, and league practices. In my personal life I have worked in aquatics teaching swimming lessons for over 18 years. Coaching and skating are two of my passions and I love to help people gain more confidence and grow their skills. Not only is skating a form of exercise, it can also be a way to move around the city, a form of relaxation, and a social experience. I have a very easy to understand approach to teaching skills and understand that everyone learns differently and at different speeds. My skating specialities are street skating (maneuvering safely through MTL roads and bike paths), beginners to advanced skating skills, and skating for roller derby. I offer private, semi private and group lessons for all ages, and levels to help skaters gain confidence, improve skating techniques and most importantly have fun on their skates.

Ever wanted to learn how to ride a ramp, slide rails or even throw flips with your skates on? Whether it’s in the streets or at the skatepark, my lessons will teach you how to shred HARD.

After inline skating during my teenage years, I gave quads a try in the summer of 2021 and was instantly hooked. One year later, after being entirely self-taught, I am participating in my first Advanced category competition.

During these classes I will be teaching beginner and intermediate tricks and techniques by deconstructing each movement and giving you live feedback. I will also try to provide key know-hows that will make you a better skater such as getting over fear and knowing your limits.

Marilyn aka "Skate with Marly"

It's at age 7 in a classical ballet class that I discovered my passion for self-expression through movement and it was only the beginning for me. After being a ballerina for 8 years, I started being interested in different dance genres such as ballroom and latin dancing, hip hop, jazz, and baladi. 
Having a wide skill set as a dancer, I then had the opportunity to become a dance teaching assistant, a professional performer and back-up dancer in Lebanon for several local artists.
It was only after moving to Canada during the covid pandemic that I discovered the world of roller dance through social media and decided to buy my very first pair of skates. This decision has changed my world and I have ever since been addicted. 
Having a solid understanding of rhythm, musicality and footwork in combination with hard work, practice and coaching sessions from experienced roller dancers within Canada, I started teaching private and group classes for beginners indoors and outdoors in Montreal.
If you're looking to begin your roller dance journey and you're not sure where to start, I offer group sessions for complete beginner's and/or private 1:1s. Feel free to send me an email or direct message through instagram @skatewithmarly and I would be happy to cater a program that suits your needs.

Style de Dance sur patin New-yorkais .

J’ai fait du freestyle pendants 10 ans et ils y’a 20 ans j’ai fait un voyage à NY et j’ai découvert les Central Park Dance skaters, et j’ai tomber en amour avec cette dance. J’ai fait la navette pour un and prendre à danser. Depuis j’ai continué à prendre des cours et d’enseigner.

My name is Krizsanta (Santa Muerte is my roller derby persona). I have been on skates since the age of 5, roller skates for 12 years, and training any level of roller skater for 10 years. I have played at the highest level of International WFTDA Roller Derby (with Toronto Roller Derby; Misfit Militia; Buffalo Queen City Roller Derby) and proud to have competed in the World Cup of Roller Derby with Team Philippines and am grateful to be a part of the Lowlife MTL skate crew and have their support.

Through my derby career I realized I love breaking down complicated movements into skills that accelerates progress. In all honesty, this is not because I am a gifted athlete, but am stubborn and have worked hard to overcome all my mistakes and failings .... to which there were plenty. From said failings/triumphs, I have created Roller Derby programs and drills that develop the skating foundations to equip a beginner to play the most technical and physically demanding sport I have ever played. I have had the pleasure of internationally teaching roller skating: indoors/outdoors, all levels of skills, youths as young as 4 while accommodating injuries. I specialize in adapting my teaching to try and complement any capability or way of understand concepts. I enjoy exploring weird analogies and talking about the magic of physics to make difficult concepts accessible.

Roller skating is crazy fun, but difficult. My priority is to make you good skater, with the foundations to follow instructional roller skating videos, and mostly do so safely. Skating outdoors is quite different than indoors (or on any consistently smooth outdoor surface). I have 11 years’ experience skating outdoors and will focus on these skills and reference the difference to other surfaces.

Each level is designed to progressively build your understanding the foundations to get familiar with your new quad-skate-BF. Foundations will allow you to build your style of skating by controlling your edges, weight transfer, stance dampening, skate maintenance.
