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 skating 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.
Each company’s season varies, depending on location:
- AIT Boston holds its rehearsal and performances from February to June;
- AIT Minneapolis-Saint Paul‘s rehearsal and performance season is typically from September through May;
- AIT New York City rehearses weekly from September to May with performances over the holidays; and
- AIT Chicago rehearses on an as-needed basis for holiday and seasonal performances.

- learn contemporary skating styles as you meet and connect with other contemporary artists in your area;
- attend a seminar at one of our locations at no cost to learn more about AIT’s artistic mission and movement philosophy; and
