Two-time Olympian and Canadian pair skating champion Doug Ladret serves as the Ice Den's Director of Figure Skating Development. Ladret and his former skating partner, Christine Hough, skated to a variety of international medals. The team made five trips to the World Championships and came away with Canada's top spot in the 1988 Canadian Championships.
As professionals, the team performed with Stars On Ice before Ladret went on to serve as Performance Director for the Stars On Ice tour in 1997.
Ladret is the recipient of an Emmy Honors Certificate for choreography on the CBS television special "Scott Hamilton: Upside Down."
Ladret began his coaching career in Barrie, Ontario working with World & Olympic skaters. In the short time since the Ice Den opened, his current crop of up-and-coming skaters have developed into National & International Champions. He is in constant demand as a choreographer for former World & Olympic Champions as well as professional ice shows.
Ladret is also a frequent presenter at national & international seminars across North America.
