Keegan Shim

MiddleworX

Keegan a.k.a. Shim is a roller skater and dancer from Toronto, Canada, representing Great On Skates and JamFam Crew. He is the founder of MiddleworX Roller Dance company which is an educational hub that promotes the art form of dance skate in the Greater Toronto Area, Canada, and beyond. 

Throughout the past few years, Shim has developed his craft by learning from multiple teachers locally and internationally, as well as fusing elements from his street dance background into his skating. He believes in the power of giving back and has grown to become a passionate community builder - you can find him teaching classes, facilitating events, and hosting practice sessions around his city, all which provide an environment for new and experienced skaters to develop their skills and have fun.


Continual learning is the mission and he hopes he can do his part in preserving roller skate culture so it can persist for many years to come. He is excited to be part of the Skate N Learn team. Don't hesitate to contact Shim if you have any questions or would like to book a session.


“The mindset isn’t about seeking a result—it’s more about the process of getting to that result. It’s about the journey and the approach."
