The Square & The Blade School’s Easter Disco Skate Party Attracted More Than 150 Skaters

For those who love to skate, do drop by with your family and friends at the Square by Jaya One for a FREE skating. Mommy Jane and Little Angels were there to attend the free skating and to join in the fun to look for eggs as part of the Easter Day celebration. The Square by Jaya One and The Blade School successfully launched its first-ever Easter Disco Skate Party, a community skating event that draws inspiration from the ’80s roller disco theme concept on 16 April 2022 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

This event encourages learning, social interaction and a sense of togetherness that is done safely following proper safety measures under the guidelines by the Ministry of Health with social distancing and mandatory wearing of masks. 


The event is also in parallel to celebrating the partnership between The Square and The Blade School since December 2021 when The Square launched its Christmas Skating Nights to bring about fun experiences for the whole family.

The objective behind the collaboration is to serve as a platform to foster community connections through skating. Open for inline and roller skaters of all ages, the Easter Disco Themed Skate Party is The Square’s maiden effort at developing its enrichment offering for families and friends to bond and explore new outdoor hobbies that could be more resilient to the pandemic’s restrictions. In line with the collaboration, a succession of activities such as skate classes, public skate sessions, and workshops by The Blade School will follow with an aim to build a more vibrant, connected community. 

Participants as young as 2 years old start their skating activities
“As a space championing social experiences, we wanted to create an environment for people to connect to each other through skating. 2 years into the pandemic, I believe people are interested in picking up skating as a real hobby because people can still go out and skate together, still be distanced apart enough, but still be able to talk with each other – wherewith cycling or with running, it's hard to chat, but with skating, it's more fluid and you have more freedom to be social,” said Charles Wong, Executive Director of Tetap Tiara Sdn Bhd, the developer of The School by Jaya One.

Supported by The Blade School, a leading community of inline skaters in Malaysia, attendees took part in a host of exciting activities, including the Easter Egg Hunt and Limbo Rock – where winners can walk away with free skates and cash vouchers respectively. Paired with great music and disco thematic, The Square and The School Level 1 was transformed into a roller disco arena for inline and roller skaters alike to enjoy an ‘egg-citing’ skate night. Families with children seized the opportunity to spend some quality time together whilst celebrating the festive spirit with some good old-fashioned ’80s music.

The Easter Disco-Themed Skate Party is a joint collaboration between The Square and The Blade School. "It is great that The Square provides a space for free skating which helps the skating community to grow. With Level 1 of The Square being skate-friendly, we are thrilled to host classes and open skating sessions here for beginners and intermediate skaters to learn in a safe, sheltered environment. Skating absolutely can be good exercise. It can improve your strength, balance, core stability, and cardiovascular endurance. The best part is, it is fun for all ages, and something to enjoy year-round," said Cheng, the founder of The Blade School.

My Little Angels enjoyed the Easter Disco Skate Party and they met their friends too. The place for the skating is big enough to ensure social distancing for more than 150 participants. Skating is a good form of exercise to helps our kids to burn off their extra energy, build strong muscles and to maintain a healthy weight. Skating also helps to reduce their back to school stress and provides a distraction from everyday worries. Good to be back on skating after 2 years of MCO and wearing back their skating shoes before it is torn.
