Default New skater in southern Maine

I need to learn to skate - on quads - in the next 2 weeks (I am going to be in a play and I skate on stage and rehearsals start in a couple of weeks). Is Happy Wheels the only roller skating place in southern Maine? Does anyone have any advice? Is there any place where I can take one or two lessons - just so I learn to stop and not fall off the stage? Thanks!!

Go to the rink and ask around. Folks will get you in the right direction. Do you happen to know a John Upham?

A good idea may be to ask someone to skate with you around, hand in hand. You can learn pretty fast this way without too much damage. That was just my experience! And it's a lot of fun too.
