Roller Skating History
Erin is a legacy skater born with skating in her genes.  Her mother was a National Champion Skater and competed in the 60’s and 70’s.  When Erin was 4 years old, her mother asked if she wanted to go to the roller skating rink, and the rest was history.  Erin started in Saturday beginner class just like many young skaters.  She had her first competition at the age of 6 and went on to place 2nd at the National Championship her first year competing in 1995.  She competed in all artistic disciplines and enjoyed spending any free time at the rink as well skating the sessions and developing her rhythm and jam skills.  Her competitive skating career helped her develop as a person, travel the world, study under some of the most prestigious roller skating coaches in the world, and experience many different skating cultures.

Erin has been involved in the competitive roller skating industry for over twenty five years. She is the artistic director, head coach, and club president of our artistic team at all our Denver and Colorado Springs Skate City locations.  Erin is also the program lead of our Saturday learn to skate program.  Her expertise within this industry will undoubtedly help  any skater achieve their skating goals.

Why do you love teaching roller skating?
“Roller skating was a huge part of my life and really helped me develop many skills I use in everyday life.  Competitive skating taught me how to set goals, create a plan to achieve them, deal with failures, literally and metaphorically fall down and get back up again, good sportsmanship, focus, determination, discipline, respect, how to push myself to be the best version of myself…. Literally, so many things that made me into the person I am today came from roller skating!  I love seeing the light bulb go off when students “get it” and I love when they see how skating relates to real life.  I love to help grow the flame of passion for skating in my students and I love that it helps them in other aspect of their life as well.”

Why do you love teaching roller skating?
“Roller skating has always been a part of my life.  I love coaching because I want to show people that there is more to roller skating than just skating in circles.  Growing up, I thought it was amazing to see skaters doing crazy jumps and spins.  I also got to see a lot of session skaters do some pretty amazing and exciting footwork while skating.  All these skaters inspired me to become the skater I am today and I hope I can help give skaters the tools to learn and grow as much as they want within roller skating.”

ThalĂ­a Lupercio

Roller Skating History:
Thalía started her skating journey when she was 22 at Skate World in Springfield Oregon.  She took her little sister skating and signed up for the lessons so she could learn how to skate backwards.  After her first lesson she was hooked!  Skating quickly became a very important part of her life.  She started training to compete, and also started teaching the beginner class at her rink.  She became more and more involved with the artistic skating team.  She developed a huge love for the sport and she knew it was going to be a lifetime commitment.  She has always been very passionate about teaching and found it very rewarding to share her love for skating by sharing it with others. 

Why do you love teaching roller skating?
“It’s in my nature to teach people, and sharing my love for skating gives me a lot of satisfaction.  I believe that everyone is capable of anything they put their mind on, so I try to not only teach skating, but confidence as well.  I get a lot of happiness when I see  skaters go from barely being able to stand on skates, to doing little tricks and having a smile on their face saying: 'I did it!'"

Roller Skating History:
Melody is relatively new to the competitive roller  skating world.  Melody started out in Saturday morning beginner level  “Learn to Skate” class like most skaters,  in the summer of 2021. After  advancing to the intermediate class at Skate City, there was a new opportunity: Artistic roller skating.  From the very first Monday night, she fell in love with the artistry and grace, though she never thought she would become a skating instructor herself.  After working hard to hone her skills in such a short time, she now brings her love of skating to all in “learn to skate” classes and our artistic skating club.  Besides teaching, she has participated in a few local competitions, but would like to progress and compete more, focusing on Roller Dance and Freestyle.

Why do you love teaching roller skating?
“I love teaching skating because I love leaving an impression on every person I encounter through it.  If I can inspire even one person to continue their skating journey after they feel like they've failed, that's all I could ask. Through teaching, I can be that role model and show that if I can do it, coming from right where they are now in class, they can too.”
