Clive Shorten
NISA Level 2 Coach


Clive has been involved in ice skating since he was a young child. He has also competed in many national and international competitions, as well as completing numerous skating schools in both Russia and the USA.

Clive has had the privilege to be taught by some of the best coaches in the world including Carlo Fassi, Tamara Moskvina and Alexei Mishim. He was lucky enough to train alongside Olympic Champions Alexei Urmanov, Alexie Yagudin and Evgeni Plushenko in the Yubileyny Ice Rink in St Petersburg.

Over the years he has been involved in many ice shows and exhibitions, he has even worked with Jayne Torvill and Robin Cousins. He has also appeared in two music videos, one for the Lightening Seeds and the other as Robbie Williams’s stunt double for the video “She’s The One”.

Clive has been coaching for more than 15 years and during this time he has held the position of Head Coach at Chelmsford Ice Rink where he not only undertook private and group tuition, but was also the Director of 3 Christmas shows. Clive has held his own skate schools in the Isle of Wight and has been used as demonstrator for Nisa Training Camps. He has taught many pupils to test standards and has taken pupils to regional and national competitions including the British Junior Championships. He has also mentored pupils to gain their NVQ Level 2 Coaching Qualification.

Clive has a wealth of experience in all aspects of ice skating and thoroughly enjoys teaching all ages and standards of pupils, his youngest pupil being just 14 months old!
