Performance Company

Become an AIT Company Member

Each AIT satellite location has a skating performance company — a group of figure skating artists who rehearse, perform at shows and events, and lead local seminars. Our mission is to bring artistic contemporary skating performances to different major metropolitan areas around the country.

Our American Ice Theatre performance companies focus primarily on contemporary skating ensemble choreography. However, there are occasional opportunities for solo performers and/or duets and trios, depending on the event. We are interested in artists who love to combine skating with dance and are energized, engaged, and invested in the contemporary skating community in their local community!
