Melanie "VioletSkates" Habel

Melanie was born a skater! She has been skating for 20+ years and comes from a skating family. She was taught by her mother how to outdoor and rink skate from a young age, enjoying skating as a recreational outlet throughout her teenage years. As an adult she trained as a roller derby

 skater but enjoyed skating on a less competitive level. From here she joined the group at 6th Avenue, Friday Night Skate, and former Cell Space and presently a congregation member at the Church of 8 Wheels.

Melanie teaches an introductory course to rollerskating and roller disco through the San

Francisco Recreation and Parks. Line dancing, outdoor skating, and jamming on the dance floor are some things you can find her doing for fun.
