Skate N’ Dance is welcoming back the return of Detroit’s Lexus Velodrome for an evening of socially distanced fun on Friday, October 9th.
Located at 601 Mack Avenue in Detroit, Skate N’ Dance is bringing the jams with a thematic Motown Funk event.

From 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., adult-friendly programming will feature a race on the Velodrome’s professionally graded track, as well as a break-skate for skaters to show off their finest freestyle moves. The evening will feature performances by Detroit-area DJs Ducky, FaderRaider Kenny B., CoveLove, Sh4g, Andrea Ghita, and Esshaki.
