Learn and Engage with AIT’s Free Summer Series or our Deep Dive Winter Series
American Ice Theatre is passionate about connecting coaches together through platforms, and offering affordable learning opportunities for the skating community. We also want to make choreography and contemporary skating education accessible to coaches and adults around the globe. Join us for free in the summer to learn about a variety of topics related to artistic skating, and/or join us in the winter to take a “deep dive” into one specific artistic skating or choreographic topic. See below for more details on both of our Virtual Workshop Series options.
Free Summer Workshop Series
Throughout the summer between June through August, AIT hosts its Coaches & Adults Workshop Series. This virtual education platform is for experts in the fields of choreography, dance, movement, yoga, mindfulness, and mind / body awareness practices to share their knowledge with skating coaches and adults. By offering a variety of classes and styles, this virtual summer series researches the various outlets, tools, and philosophies surrounding artistic skating education.
Our Summer Virtual workshops are all free, but we ask all coaches / adults to pre-register by filling out our Workshop Series Registration Form. American Ice Theatre is passionate about connecting coaches together through platforms, and offering affordable learning opportunities for the skating community. After you’ve completed the form, we will send you a confirmation email with the Zoom details. We will send out the Zoom class recordings to all registered participants!
Our 2021 Coaches and Adults Summer Workshop Series will offer in-depth, virtual sessions from world-class faculty.
Interested in donating to this AIT educational program? We do accept donations if you are interested and able! The recommended rate would be $15 per class. If you choose to donate, you can pay through our Donate & Support webpage.
