Corinne Small

Professional Profile:
I started skating after attending a national competition with my mother who is also a professional figure skater. I was often brought to the rink with her and had no interest in skating until I saw the excitement of a competition up close! On the Saturday night of the competition, they had open ice so my mom rented me a pair of skates and I’ve been hooked ever since. After competitive skating for most of my childhood and teen years in both singles and synchro, I turned professional in 2000. I started my professional career at the International Skating Center in Simsbury Connecticut under the direction of Victor Petrenko. I taught there until 2002 when I graduated from the University of Hartford. I returned to Massachusetts and continued coaching on the south shore.

I still live on the south shore with my husband, two children and my yellow lab. When not at the rink, I can usually be found volunteering at my children’s elementary schools and also enjoy traveling to our lake house in Maine or to my family’s farm in Durand, Illinois.

Formal Education:
Bachelor of Arts in Cinematography from The University of Hartford. 2002

Coaching Philosophy:
I believe every skater has the ability to reach their full potential. I work hard to find each individual’s unique learning style and gear my coaching technique in a way that best suits them. I encourage each student to have a positive attitude and respect others both on and off the ice and most importantly have fun while doing it. I hope to pass my love of the sport onto each of my students and encourage them to try their best in everything they do.
