Emmanuel Savage has been teaching Robichon's methods of inline skate instruction for 10 years! Where Emmanuel's teaching as well as skating skills shine are with kids, in skate to ski training, and urban freestyle/dance classes. In fact, he shines so much with children, for the past four years, he brought (upon their request) Robichon's kids teaching methods to Camp Ripley Youth Camp where he serves as a member of the Minnesota National Guard. Emmanuel has a heart the size of a mountain, as he is a special-education educator in the Minneapolis School Districts, too. Not to be pigeon-holed, Emmanuel, is a National Ski Racer, who competes yearly with Minnesota's Ski Challenge. In his spare time, you can catch him performing one-footed spins, crazy legs, slalom, and other urban freestyle/dance moves at our local Roller Gardens Roller Rink, racing down Minnesota's ski slopes or making voice-overs for commercials.
