ABOUT

Shae-Lynn Bourne is quite simply magic on ice. Together with her former ice dance partner Victor Kraatz, this Canadian Figure Skating Hall of Famer quickly rose to the top of the podium. The 10-time Canadian National Dance Champions became the first North American dance team to win the World Championships in 2003. In addition to being three-time Olympians, they have accumulated a total of six medals at the World Championships. The two innovators were the first ice dancers to incorporate “hydroblading” – gliding on skates with one’s body outstretched so it’s nearly horizontal to the ice.

Shae-Lynn received the Governor General’s Meritorious Service Cross for speaking out against unfair judging practices in figure skating, and most recently the Queen Elizabeth ll Diamond Jubilee Medal for her achievements and significant contribution to Canada. Currently she is balancing coaching, choreography and performing and is in world-wide demand in each of these capacities.
