Hi.... I'm Richard Humphrey

My career as a professional skater began in 1978 at the height of rollerdisco when I was selected to participate in a television pilot called, "Dancing Wheels," directed by Saul Zants Productions. That year, I formed a group of San Francisco based skaters called the, "Golden Rollers."

From 1980 to 1982, I performed in Sao Paulo, Brazil, annually in the San Francisco Fair, public performances on behalf of KSFX FM and acted as Program / Skating Director at San Francisco's Le Park skating rink. During 1982 to 1990, I appeared in performances before the San Francisco Ballet for Michael Smuin; by special invitation asked to appear as the opening act for comedian Ronny Schell and Phyllis Diller; television appearance on shows, "Evening Magazine" and "Real People."

From 1990 to 1995, I taught classes for University of California, San Francisco at the Third Wave Dance Studio, including seminars and Health Expositions. In 1995, I opened up my own Rollerdance Studio in San Francisco--the only one between here and New York, and currently teach about two classes a week.

From 1996-1997, I produced my first instructional video called, "Rollerdancing--A Workout on Skates," along with a step-by-step booklet. I performed in a Half-time show for the Oakland Skates Hockey team, special request--choreographed dance steps for Olympic Gold Medalist--Kristi Yamaguchi. I also appeared in the October 1996 Issue of Ebony Magazine in an article about Rollerdancing.

In 1999, I received a patent on the Rollerdeck-Plus fitness machine. The videos and fitness machine are the product of my passion for fitness and skating.

I have worked as Damon Wayans Rollerdance Stunt Double and most recently appeared on the Dr. Oz Show in 2010 to teach him the steps of Rollerdance.
