POP SK8 will then open at Westfield Woodland Hills on Saturday, June 1 through Sunday, June 30 and will close out the season at Westfield Culver City on Saturday, July 6 through Sunday, August 4.
POP SK8 is an immersive experience, featuring a mix of classic songs from a themed time frame while also sprinkling in current tunes and movie scores that take place in the same period. Swing SK8 Mondays (New Electro Swing mixed with classic sounds from the ’40s & ’50s), Groovy Tuesdays (Peace, love, and flower powerful music from ’60s), Dyn-O-Mite 70s Wednesdays (Disco, Pop, and Classic Rock music from the ’70s), I Want My 80s Thursdays (Music from when everyone wanted their MTV), DJ Megamix Fridays & Saturdays (Hit music from the ’90s, Y2K, and today) and La La SK8 Land Sundays (Sing-along music from Broadway & Movie Musicals) make up the diverse program. Each day, patrons will be encouraged to participate in contests, games, group popsk8-a-longs and surprise pop-up performances, all the while sharing experiences to the community through #popsk8live.
Open daily during the season, POP SK8 is a full-service outdoor roller rink created and produced by Ann Potenza. Potenza has produced and managed many family-friendly live events in Los Angeles including The Feast of San Gennaro Los Angeles and Ice at Santa Monica. Josh Smith is the co-producer and production manager, Grammy nominated music producer and DJ, Chris Cox, will serve as the musical director, and art director Andrea Mignea will create visual media to round out the POP SK8 experience.
“Classics never go out of style,” said Ann Potenza, creator and co-producer of POP SK8. “We have taken a much-loved activity, added some of our own special sugar and spice for a modern and unique twist, to bring it to a new generation. It is the perfect place to hang out with friends and family and our goal is to have everyone fall in love with roller-skating.”

Admission is $15 per person for all day wristbands and includes quad skates. Patrons are allowed to bring their own quad or inline skates. Non-skating patrons can participate in certain activities.
