AIT Chicago: Company History

American Ice Theatre Founder Jodi Porter opened an AIT satellite location in Chicago in 2012. This location collaborated with Chicago’s Ice Semblé in 2012-13 and produced the 2014 show “Let’s Dance” featuring Olympic medalist Jason Brown, National Champion Ryan Bradley, renowned choreographer Rohene Ward, and contestants from the Young Artists Showcase.

AIT Chicago is now directed by Molly Olson Poniatowski with AIT skaters performing around the Chicagoland area, including venues such as Millenium Park. Company members include Kayla Grayson, Angela Como, Shaheen Bronkowski, Chelsea Ridley, Kat Kirkpatrick, Alex Martin, Ami Perekh, Ania Biernat, Rin Reikowski, and Lauren Leonesio.
