A roller skating rink popped up at Brooklyn Fire Proof this past Saturday, and it totally blew our minds. It also made us realize that we need roller skating parties more often – like every week. But this past Saturday wasn’t just about roller skating, of course. Mind, Body & Roll was an alternative health and dance event, the idea of which came from the genius brain of Adriana Echandi. “It is to support local businesses, nonprofits and promote health and wellness in a totally new way,” said Adriana. In addition to the pop-up skating rink, the event featured several talks and workshops, such as Eating for Energy lead by nutritionist Lucy Chen, and a GAGA dance technique workshop.

Speaking of dancing, we saw a bunch of awesome DJs spinning, including excellent Chris Patrick. Adriana, please do this more often!! And if you missed it, check out our awesome video created by Kelsea Kosko.
