Best Place For Roller-Dancing Lessons New York 2002 - THE ROXY - CLOSED
While THE ROXY gets mixed reviews for its usual club events, Wednesday night roller-skating is a unique disco dancing experience. The Chelsea hot spot is transformed from an oversized megaclub into a sexy skating party. Seemingly professional dancers glide by, effortlessly pirouetting while you struggle with a simple crossover. A kind, sweatband-clad dancer will teach you how to skate backward, or at least he'll toss out words of encouragement. The comfy benches and the bars that surround the rink allow respite for tired ankles while you people-watch. Roller-era-appropriate music completes the Roxy's transformation from a normal club to the gay birthday party you never had.
