Raw Meat Lamb Session: Dance Dance Revolution

Join Raw Meat Roller Skating on Saturday, June 25 at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., from 5 to 8 for a very special three-hour session of Raw Meat. For the first two hours, we will work through a series of roller skating and roller derby drills, including stops, falls, agility, jumping, skating in a pack, pace lines, fitness drills and more. Don’t worry if you are beginner—we’ll show you the ropes (everyone else is going to see the ropes too. This is Meatinatrix’s session, after all. Mwhahaha).

If you survive first two hours, a very special treat awaits: rollerdance. That’s right, we’re going dancing. On skates. Because we can dance if we want to, and if you don’t dance, you’re no friend of mine.

Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before. Neither have we. It’s going to be a gong show of epic proportions. You know you have to be there. We’re going to dance and have some fun. After all, groove is in the heart.

So, Saturday, free your mind and voices, raise your hands and join us. You can feel it in the air. Rhythm is a dancer, and she’s going to make you sweat. And quite possibly, shake your tail feathers.

When we’re finished with you, you may (or may not) look like Gene Kelly on roller skates.

(Disclaimer: you aren’t going to look anything like that.)

Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Roller Skating Lamb Session:

These sessions are open to women who are not ass-hats and would like to roller skate with great people. If you want to learn roller skating skills, roller derby skills, and have fun, please join us. Raw Meat Lamb sessions run every Saturday from 5 to 7 PM at 2311 Cassiar St. Vancouver, with a special 3-hour session on the last Saturday of each month.

Raw Meat Vancouver Lamb Sessions have no roller skating skills requirements. As long as you have all the correct gear (roller skates [quad skates], helmet, knee pads, wrist guards, elbow guards and a mouth guard) you are welcome to attend and skate with us. It is also a requirement of our venue that we use white or light toe stoppers and cover your knee and elbow pads with white or light hockey tape to avoid marking the flooring. No gear, No tape, No skate.

Don’t be afraid to attend these sessions if you are a complete newcomer to roller skating. This is the perfect place to learn to roller skate. We will teach you everything you need to know. On the same token, if you are an advanced skater, come on out! We’ll keep you hopping with our evil floor worms. Want to know more? You’ll just have to show up!

The Rules:

We have two simple rules at Raw Meat: 1. Don’t be an Ass-Hat. 2. Be Safe. There is zero-tolerance for breaking these rules.
We operate in a strictly non-contact environment – no hitting, pushing or overly aggressive skating. But we will cover roller derby drills that involve safe touching of teammates and hip/arm whips. If you’re not ok with touching people, roller derby may not be the sport for you, but you won’t have to worry about getting shoulder checked with us.

We also run an advanced session on Saturday mornings. To attend these you must pass some basic skills testing. If you would like to attend one of these sessions and you are not a currently certified TCRG league skater please contact us or come to one of our night sessions and talk to us about your skating level.

See You All Saturday!
