The full-length hour and a half performance will include two new works incorporating dancers, skaters, music, lights and effects.

Under the direction of Jodi Porter, the AIT ensemble creates a magical experience through the art of dance on ice. Inspired by the movement of the ocean and the changing landscape of the artic Glacier blends dance with skating in a moving and powerful way that tells a story. Tech Then Tech Now… is a 45 minute progression of technology from the industrial age to now and beyond. Tech Then Tech Now…will highlight visual/film technology directed by filmmaker Trevor Hill mixed with dance, singing and skating. AIT's upcoming production will be a visual treat for the whole family.

Enrique Jarquin and Lucy Yoo will be returning as premier dancers on stage. The 2010 AIT ensemble includes: Billy Kheir, Elizabeth McGlauflin, Elizabeth Handley, Julia Ponomorenko, and Ben Westenberger. Featured AIT skater is Olympian Beata Handra.

Proceeds from the shows benefit local children’s ice theatre programming: Golden State Synchronized Skating Team, Ice Crystals, and Redwood City Ice Theatre.
