AIT New York City

AIT New York City: Company History

Led by Chiquita Limer and based in New York City, AIT NYC began in 2017 when Limer, along with fellow coaches and friends, started exploring dance choreography on the ice.

After sharing a series of ice combo videos on social media platforms, she decided to organize the company, which includes current and former members Jordan Bailey, Kata Junninen, Chia-hui, Ryah Mesch, Danielle Cinone, Kristiana Zuccarini, Nathalie Borgella, Vitalii Sazonets, Matt Thomas, Dmitri Serebrenik, and Ziad Khedr.

Limer describes the company’s movement philosophy as inspired by community, diversity, culture, and contemporary embodiment.
