9. Evian Roller Babies
Probably one of the most famous skating videos in the world! Evian stroke hard in releasing this roller dance video with skating babies.

10. Gene Kelly - Always Fair Weather
This scene of the 1955 movie Always Fair Weather remains a reference in the legend of skating in the movies. Let's enjoy it one more time...
There is no need to say that the list is far from being exhaustive. We couldn't possibly condense them all in here. Thanks for your understanding!
