Seminars: Bring AIT To Your Local Rink

Bring a Contemporary Skating Seminar to Your Rink

American Ice Theatre seminars can travel! We offer our contemporary and artistic figure skating seminars at any club or rink location nationwide.

Our seminars are typically led by co-CEOs Kate McSwain and Garrett Kling, but faculty directors of all AIT locations including Chiquita Limer, Stephanie Chase Bass, John Mucko, Annette Thomas, and Molly Olson — can lead seminars where prearranged.

Excited about AIT’s Mission, Vision & Core Values and interested in booking a seminar at your rink? Please contact to inquire!

Seminar Tuition & Private Lessons

  • Full-day seminars: $1500
  • Half-day seminars: $1000

Since the cost of the seminar is a fixed rate, there is no required minimum number of skaters, but a maximum of 30-35 skaters is recommended.

We also typically offer private lessons at a negotiable hourly rate before and/or after the seminar to work with students on their own programs and skills, for the maximum artistic experience. The hourly rate is typically paid directly by skaters.


Travel & Accommodations

Travel and accommodations are additional. Where possible, we work with you to decrease these costs by identifying nearby faculty, adding onto existing travel plans, etc.
