Auditions for highly skilled ice-skaters

Le Patin Libre is living something awesome and will grow bigger in the next months and years.

So, we’re looking forward training new skating-artists. The persons who will live this adventure will discover a skating living outside « the world of skating » and developing itself in the professional network of contemporary dance.

We strongly advise all candidates to watch videos of our latest creation Vertical Influences before the workshop-audition.  9 excerpts exist on our YouTube channel.

We organize many auditions, this year.  Here are the dates now confirmed:

Eastern North America :
Montréal : March 19th 2017, 20h30, Atrium du 1000 De La Gauchetière

Western North America :
Vancouver : April 23rd 2017, 20h30, Burnaby 8 rinks

Europe :
Paris, France: July 5th 2017, 17h30, patinoire de Courbevoie

The number of candidates is limited. You must reserve your spot by doing so:
– send us a video of you skating at training or in a performance (YouTube link or file)
– write us a few lines about you

Our email: info@lepatinlibre.com

The persons coming from far and who will do the audition will be housed during their short stay where the audition is happening. The candidates must travels by their own means.

The candidates will not be asked to perform or do a show.  They will live a choreographic workshop with some of the actual artists and choreographs of the company. Then, the audition will become a more informal meeting opened to exchanges and challenges (on and off the ice).  There is no fee.

We will consider all applications but we prefer:
– persons interested by contemporary and urban art
– persons enjoying or wanting to discover life on tour
– persons physically ready to do intense athletic performances
The chosen candidates must be ready to eventually live on international tours and in creation/rehearsal residence many months every year. Our artists receive one of the best remuneration of the domain.

The first engagements of the chosen candidates will be for a participation to rehearsal residencies and series of shows between April and November 2018 (2 to 3 trips). The new artists will also be contracted for shows during the 2 following years.

To get to know the actual choreographic style of Le Patin Libre, here are a few videos :
