AIT Mission, Vision & Core Values


American Ice Theatre is 501(c)3, tax-deductible, non-profit organization working to foster and empower artistic and contemporary skating through education, performance, and outreach.


To be a global leader in the world of artistic and contemporary figure skating by offering skating artists a non-competitive platform to create, learn, and perform. We envision skaters everywhere to develop a healthy and holistic view of themselves, their life-long journey in skating, and find a community of artistic and contemporary individuals who will join them on their path. 

Our Core Values

AIT’s core values are inclusion, acceptance, innovation, and authenticity, and we strive for these values to flourish at all AIT events, seminars, and performances.

INCLUSION: AIT promotes contemporary skating as a method of collaboration between elite skaters, companies, and teams and beginner skaters, companies, and teams. We seek to break down barriers between these groups so they both can invent, create, improvise, share, learn, and grow from one another to develop this art form. We strive to offer an artistic-focused trajectory that can work side-by-side with the competitive structure of figure skating, creating healthier, passionate, and well-rounded skaters in the long term. 

Everyone has something to share, everyone has something to learn.

ACCEPTANCE:  AIT teaches tools to incorporate mindfulness, mind-to-body practices, and healthy mental training to offer space for skaters to view themselves as authentic and integral contributors of the artistic skating community. Competitive figure skating culture can often produce elitism, body shaming, and rivalry; however, we promote acceptance of all skill levels, abilities, body types, and socio-economic backgrounds. 

Humans first, skaters second.

INNOVATION: AIT strives to bring to the ice new ways of moving, interacting, and performing. We aim to move to push the boundaries of artistic and contemporary figure skating by breaking the traditional structure of “rules,” and instead establishing unconventional and experimental movement philosophies and skating styles. In doing so, we hope to introduce a new type of audience into contemporary skating via the collaboration between skating and the arts, music, and dance worlds.

AUTHENTICITY: AIT believes all open skaters have the ability to discover their creativity by tapping into the innate authenticity within themselves. It is our goal to foster and nurture that creativity by offering platforms to encourage choreographers, coaches, young skaters, and adult skaters to compose, move, improvise, innovate, and connect. Embracing this creative collaboration will enable all contemporary skaters to access the maximum potential of their artistic abilities and live their authenticity to its core.
