Laurence SABAS started roller-skating in her teenager time, aged 13, in 1986- at the mythical place in Paris "La Main Jaune", a roller rink discotheque for Parisian teenagers where many love stories started. Some years later, at the magnificent place the Trocadero, Laurence got an instant epiphany while watching to a young woman, Stella RENNELA -just freshly back from San Francisco USA- on a lively upbeat hip hop music. It hadn't waited so long that Laurence was made a main part of one of the first professional international roller skaters'dancer team "Roller n' Fun", staff featured by Stella, "Mouss", "Cacahuète", & Gee. Laurence's talent & passion became keys that opened instantly the doors for many exhibition flying to Bahamas, Morocco, Tunisie, Guadeloupe, Germany, Italia, South Korea & giving exhibition for Paco Raban, Fanta, Tommy Hilfiger... and many others. Laurence is not only a superb stage performer who gets her audience hypnotized at the first glimpse -a reputation she has always lived up to until now-. She has since ever felt an urgent deep need for transmitting her passion to others, and the power she gives to pedagogie is just the other face of herself, intertwined with the show beast. That’s the reason why, in parallel to her show woman career, in 1992, she started to work as a professional roller skating coach in the french school, Roller Squad Institut, she quickly completed and passed her examination of the “Brevet d’Etat d’Educateur Sportif (BEES)” and became an official pedagog on the French State’s List. After a pause to raise her two kids, Laurence came back on the international scene with even more power than ever, being a part of the roller skating team “SkateXpress” (founded by Jean-Marc GRAVIER), hired for the Fashion Week 2019 by Tommy Hilfiger & Zendaya or le Bon Marché.
