WHAT EXACTLY IS AIT??
We bring world-class dance professionals to your studio for a weekend of mindful dance education and mentorship.
THE AIT DIFFERENCE
Not only do we energize your students with a wide range of dance techniques and choreography taught by some of the best in the industry, we also empower students to find their own voice as an ARTIST and recognize the importance of building a supportive community.
Focused journal sessions
AIT will give your students the tools to become well-rounded, confident, and kind artists!
PLUS, your students aren't the only ones who will benefit... AIT offers opportunities for your studio staff and parents to share in the learning with our Coffee Magic chats and Feed the Soul seminars. We will reinvigorate the energy of your entire studio... keep scrolling to learn more!
ARTISTS IN TRAINING
Our dancers haven't stopped talking about all of you! Besides the wonderful unbelievable choreography you taught, more important was the message and inspiration you brought.
