We are thrilled to welcome Laura Morelli as our Off-Ice Instructor for Pre-Bronze Groups & Starskaters.  She is also a CanFit Pro Certified Personal trainer and a certified Ballet for Figure Skaters instructor. She was a Junior Italian National and International Competitor. Laura was also a Professional Ice skater with Holiday on Ice and Glisse on Ice!

These classes can be focused on various disciplines (Ballet + Stretch; Strength and Conditioning; Active
Flexibility…) with the main goal of being geared towards the specific biomechanical, physical, and artistic
needs of figure skaters.

Laura integrates her knowledge of figure skating, ballet and personal training to create well-rounded
classes that optimize a skaters training time off the ice by increasing skaters muscular resistance,
cardiovascular endurance, posture, flexibility and musicality (all classes include a musical
component…which is needed for figure skaters’ artistic development and also makes everything more
Skate to Soar classes with Laura are constituted of various training systems such as circuits; SKATES - ON
ballet exercises to re-create on - ice balance and alignment; exercise progressions; active, passive and
PNF stretching techniques; muscular activation and muscular imbalances correctional exercises; postural
and artistic movement musical routines and many more…
