Romain Haguenauer (born 16 July 1976) is a French ice dancing coach, choreographer, and former competitor. He is best known for his work with two-time World champions Gabriella Papadakis / Guillaume Cizeron.

Personal life[edit]

Haguenauer was born on 16 July 1976 in Lyon, France. His mother, an elementary school teacher, and father, a lawyer, raised him in Ainay.[1] After graduating in 1998 from Claude Bernard University Lyon 1 with a master's degree in science, sport and physical education (Capes d'éducation physique et sportive), he taught for a year at a secondary school, collège Jean Monnet.[2][1]



Haguenauer was coached from the age of five by Muriel Boucher-Zazoui and competed with his sister, Marianne Haguenauer, for ten years.[2] They placed eighth at the 1995 World Junior Championships in November 1994 in Budapest and won gold at the 1995 Ondrej Nepela Memorial. Due to his sister's health issues, he retired from competition at age 20 but had no regrets, having a strong interest in coaching.[1]
