Marie-France Dubreuil & Patrice Lauzon are former Canadian ice dancers who, together with Romain Hagenauer, currently work as figure skating coaches at the Gadbois Centre in Montreal. Marie-France also choreographs programs (both for ice dancers, pairs and single skaters). For a list of their students see the last section entitled "List of students".

Marie-France was born on 11 August 1974 and Patrice on 26 November 1975 (both in Montreal).

They are two-time World silver medalist (2006 and 2007), the 2007 Four Continents Champions and five-time National Champions (2000 and 2004-2007). They also represented Canada in two Olympic Games (they placed 12th in Salt Lake City 2002 and had to withdraw after a nasty fall while executing a lift in the OD during the Torino 2006 Games) and won numerous medals at the GP events.

Dubreuil & Lauzon skated in ice shows in the 2007–08 season. They confirmed their retirement from competitive skating on 20 May 2008.

They married in 2008 and have two children.

During their competitive career they were coached by Muriel Zazoui (since 2002), Steffany Hanlen (Since 2002), Sylvie Fullum (1995-2002) and François Vallée (1995-2002).

I've just opened a thread for a couple I deeply admired back then when they skated (I just adore their "Somewhere In Time" FD) and still admire as coaches of so numerous great skaters. Enjoy!

The Beauty and Elegance of Dubreuil and Lauzon - Somewhere In Time

I remember watching this mesmerizing performance by Patrice Lauzon and Marie-France Dubreuil - Somewhere in Time - at the 2006 Worlds. What a lovely program. It's one of my favourites from one of Canada's best Ice Dance Teams.

I also found this montage of Scott and Tessa's programs done to Somewhere in Time. It's kind of fitting that they were coached by Patrice and Marie-France...enjoy
