The American Contemporary Skating Festival is in Boston, MA from Thursday-Sunday from June 8-11, 2023. Coaches, choreographers, and professional skaters ages 17+ and Levels Intermediate Standard Track MIF+ are all invited to join us for this incredible experience where “everyone has something to share, and everyone has something to learn” from the contemporary skating community.
For a tentative schedule, please review our Festival page.
The Weekend Choreography Workshop is an opportunity for 5 invited international & professional choreographers to choreograph on assigned groups of participants who “opt-in.” The participants MUST be present for Thursday-Sunday to perform with an ensemble. The pieces are choreographed in 5 hours over the course of the weekend (both on-ice and off-ice rehearsals). The Workshop ensembles will perform their pieces at the Festival Showcase on Sunday night. Maximum 10 skaters per ensemble; limited space available – first come, first served. If they opt in, participants are committing to the ensemble and cannot withdraw from this opportunity after May 29.
Please review the payment options at the bottom of this page carefully; T-shirts are an additional $25. Maximum capacity for this event is 72 participants – first come, first served.
We require a 1-hour, virtual Safe Space Community Training (on Zoom) prior to the start of Festival for ALL PARTICIPANTS, LEADERS & CHOREOGRAPHERS. This training will be on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 at 9:15-10:15 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. If you do not participate in this mandatory training, we cannot permit you to join the Festival.
