Le Patin Libre

Le Patin Libre is a Montreal contemporary skating company. It combines the athletic virtuosity of skating with the creativity of contemporary dance and the energy of urban dances.

The company was founded in 2005 by former high-level fantasy skaters. They came together with the desire to transform their athletics into a means of free expression. Far from stereotypes and glitter, the creations of Patin Libre offer real works of authors who exploit the incredible scenic and choreographic possibilities of sliding.​
