Event specialist, Figure skating coach and entrepreneur.
Chantal Fry is a Toronto born figure skater and entrepreneur who created Glisse on Ice. The business was born from the idea of bringing the art of skating to places you least expect. A recent article by Canadian Special Events names Glisse ‘most unique event entertainment company in North America.’
She lived 8 years in Marseille and is fluent in English and French. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and journalism. After a successful career competing internationally in Figure skating she achieved her Skate Canada Coaching certifications and enjoys sharing her passion for the ice with others. She teaches at the Leaside skating club and runs private skating schools in unique locations.
Skating is an integral part of Chantal’s life and experiences. From her first glide on the ice as a little girl, she fell in love with the cool wind and freedom of movement. After completing four Golds under Skate Canada , Chantal set off to the performance world with “Innovations on Ice.” She then toured with “Holiday on Ice” in Europe and the “Lido de Paris,”. In Canada she enjoys success with her team on a synthetic ice surface performing for the event industry. Chantal has produced high quality shows for over 100 events; in Montreal for The Cirque du Soleil and in fabulous Canadian venues including the Four SeasonsTM, the Design Exchange and the FairmontTM.
While performing at Toronto’s Luminato festival, Chantal was featured on the W network with the show Ripple Effect. She also performed the Glisse concept on Marilyn Denis, CTV’s Canada AM and Daytime Toronto and on Season 15 of Dragon’s den on CBC she launched her skating apparel clothing line.
