Hello everyone!! My name is Chelsea, and on IG, my handle is @idreamofskating. I really do dream of Skating. It has become as necessary as eating and sometimes I wonder exactly how I became so entrenched. I love that there is always a new challenge and that it is connected to a global community and I get to connect mind and body and music to create something that is unique to me, but also informed by the people I skate with both in person and virtually. It is just so cool. I was a speed skater in my early teens when my family lived in Alaska. We moved to Overland Park, Kansas, when I was a freshman in high school, and the trauma of moving during such a pivotal time sent me into a depression, and I gave up Skating. I didn’t pick it up again until I got sober 25 years later. Another pivotal time in my life at first I just trail skated but then a friend told me about a skate meet up and that is where I was introduced to the Skate community here in the bay area where I currently live, and all of the amazing things we can do on eight wheels. I started going to these parties, learning and making friends, and now I can’t imagine my life without my Skate community. It started to take over my life so much that I had to get a separate Instagram handle to track my process and my progress. Overtime, my posting has slowed down. I still skate every day but I feel like the community there is just too large for me to keep up with. That’s why I’m so excited about having this group to work with. I like the idea of a smaller group and more in-depth conversation about Skating.. Looking forward to getting to know everyone and growing together.

@Knejie Allen Thanks so much! I’m looking forward to watching and learning from the video… A skater friend was trying to show me a couples routine that included the spread eagle the other day at the rink but I couldn’t nail it because of my inability to do spread eagle properly.
