For the ninth year in a row, team Chill has kicked off the holiday season at Tempe marketplace, an open air shopping center in Tempe Arizona. The weekend event featured entertainment, opportunities for the public to skate, and et some tips from skaters. The season Team Chill created a theme, was choreographed by 5-time national champion Naomi Lang and pro skater, and pro skater Shannon Rokowsky. The event featured a special Snow Girl public performance, that was displayed on the jumbo LEF screen for the large crowd, leading up to the center’s holiday tree lighting, followed by a snow show that repeated throughout the evening.
Team Chill looks forward to more promotional Mall events like this, and hopes to use this model to transition to roller activities in the spring/summer months.

1. Flashing LIghts are Cool Again!!!! Discotheques merged with Roller Rinks to create Roller Disco and lasers and mirror balls soon became part of roller skating culture. Now with the advent of EDM, and club culture these vibes are back in vogue. … Everyone is craving the disco music genre developed in nightclubs in the 60’s and 70s. Disco clubs with their DJ’s and light shows incorporated many musical traditions from soul, funk, motown and even salsa. Roller rinks themed disco bring back that nostalgic feeling that left dancers and skaters energized and led to the introduction of the hip hop scene. It is no coincidence that roller skating and disco become popular at the same time. They were born together and made for each other! 2. Everyone's Always Looking For Something Fun to Do that Also Great Fitness!!!. Roller Skating is not only great exercise but it's also got a great zen quality to it. Breath Deep… Roller skating is an excellent source of exercise! Similar to the physical exertion of jogging, roller skating can help strengthen not only your legs but also your core muscles and lungs! 3. Date Nights are Always Popular! Are you ready to get close? Why not try a Couples Skating Date night. Whether you are taking lessons or performing in sync with music, holding hands while you skate sounds like a pretty good way to cuddle up to that special someone! 4. We live in a Social Culture. Social Media is King! Therefore any activity that appeals to our social nature is going to continue to rise in popularity today. Roller skating truly is the **‘Groovy side of skating’**, where sports and socializing meet. It is more than a sport of activity; like skateboarding, it's a mode of transportation that's even replaced our shoes; it's an accessory, with it's very own sub-culture. We've known for some time that Roller Skating would continue this comeback and CHILL Promotional Events & Entertainment been ahead of the pack every step of the way. We have been helping our clients host their own 'roller dance parties' for some time now, and are able to transform any space into a Retro RollerChill Dance Club , complete with barriers, and supply of quad or roller blade skates, lasers lights, chillblasters, mirror balls, DJs and safety equipment.
In late November Chill opened The Rink at MGM Springfield MA with a launch event featuring special guest, US National Champion, World & Olympic medalist, Nancy Kerrigan, an event which helped kick things off with large crowds each weekend throughout December. Every week, we also hosted a Local Skater Showcase featuring performances by area amateur figure skaters. The opportunity was an excellent experience for these young skaters who braved the cold air and outdoor conditions to perform for guests, onlookers and passerby. The skaters enjoyed the experience to feel like a star for a day and each met the challenge like a pro. The Rink is always available for Private Rentals, and it seems no holiday season is complete without a proposal. Indeed MGM Springfield‘s historic location, and our beautiful rink design made for the perfect proposal setting for one happy couple who rented the rink for this special occasion. Thankfully we got to add another post to our #shesaidyes. After the New Year the temperature dropped and so we hope to turn it up with the addition of professional Skating Entertainment, starring an ensemble cast of four pro skaters. Together they perform twice a day, three nights a week. Chill After Dark is a 10-15 min segment based on the laws of attraction, just in time for the Valentine seaon. The Entertainment is offered in conjunction with our Fantasy Skate Camps, and private VIP lessons, and will continue through February and into March.
