AIT Boston: Company History
Since then, AIT Boston continues to hold regular seasonal seminars all across the greater Boston area with past guest artists including Elin Schran, Brooke Frieling, Adam Kaplan, Garrett Kling, and Anne Goldberg. Additional educational opportunities include the annual American Contemporary Skating Festival located in Somerville, MA — an international event that brings in coaches, choreographers, and professional skaters from all over the globe to create, collaborate, compose, communicate, and connect. In addition, every spring, John Mucko, leads a 10-week AIT education series for skaters of all ages and levels in Rockland, MA.
AIT Boston also presents professional company performances each year. The AIT Boston performance season begins with rehearsals in February; performances at multiple area club shows through May; special performances at the Riverwalk Resort in Loon Mountain, NH and a final season performance at the Festival Showcase in Somerville, MA.
Mucko and McSwain both directly trained with AIT Founder, Jodi Porter, and are excited to continue her vision of the development of artistic skating through education, performance, and outreach in the Boston area.
