rollerskating legs background for skate of mind live

After almost a year of delays due to the pandemic, we actually managed to run our Skate of Mind Live event at Theatre Peckham!

As we were just coming out of lockdown we decided to scale back our ideas for the original event and take this an opportunity to run it as a test event with limited capacity.

To my surprise, it sold out within a few days of the tickets going on sale (no pressure then!).

This is a testament to the need and demand for indoor spaces in the run-up to autumn and winter at least.

I’ve passed the “Roller Skating Girl” sculpture on so many occasions and I’ve always been drawn to it. Maybe it’s the way she appears to be calm and effortlessly frozen in motion. It makes me think of skating freely with the wind in my face. That freedom and feel of flying. Her clench fist shows grit and determination. Strong like many of the roller girls in our team of #CreativePeopleOnWheels. She’s even sparked of many of a creative idea in me…. #WarningCreationzInProgress. So who is this girl? I’ve wondered for over the years and to answer the question, and the following skate by the piece during a Black Lives Matter march past, I reached out to Anderé Wallice, creator of this sculpture and “The Whisperer”  for the answer.

When I contacted André, I shared my photo of myself next to Roller Skating Girl during a BLM march in London. I expressed my feeling towards the piece,…

The R0ll Jiggy squad are back from the BCN Rollerdance 2016 installment of Skate Love Barcelona.

We joined fellow skaters from Germany, UK, Netherlands and across the globe to come together in a colorful mix of people who combine their passion for roller skating with music, dance and art.

Take a brief look at some of the weekend’s event in pictures.

Opening Night on the Catwalk

#TeamJiggy presented the UK’s DJ Dr Drew’s Prescription Sound to the BCN audience and joined forces with fellow skate DJs Rollers Hi-Fi (Germany) and DJ Bart (France) in the booth to create an awesome vibe on the opening night.
