Vertical Influences | Le Patin Libre

“It’s chilly down there on the ice, but Vertical Influences is one of those rare shows I could willingly have sat through all over again.”

Cutting edge ice dance performance, that’s what the Canadian Le Patin Libre offers. Their name says it all: free skating far removed from figure skating routines and clichés.

The group was founded in 2005 by former champion figure skaters who used their stunning skills to enhance the theatrical and choreographic possibilities of gliding on ice. With impressive footwork and amazing speed and elegance they stretch the boundaries of figure skating in the 21st century.
