Did you know…
Violetta loves animals and has a cat named Kitty! She and her husband, Pete Dack (born and raised in Peterborough, ON and also a professional ice-skater) lived at Fowler’s Corner’s before moving closer to their coaching jobs at the Thornhill Figure Skating Club.
Violetta has volunteered with HSKL. She helped out at one of our past golf tournaments.
At the age of 11, Violetta was competing nationally. A year later she retired from amateur figure skating to join the Moscow Circus on Ice with her family. At 14, she debuted her hula-hoops act in Russia.
Violetta and PJ skated together in season 2 of Battle of the Blades.
