Morning classe - Contemporary Technique
Ami Shulman teaches a highly dynamic class, that integrates the floor as an essential component for exploring full body connectivity and proprioceptive awareness. Her teachings focus on the efficiency and clarity of movement, which liberates the form and allows for a deeper range of physical expression. This approach fosters the movement potential of the individual, promoting somatic awareness while expanding the interpretive possibilities of the performer.
Ami Shulman is a Rehearsal Director at the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. She has choreographed for the National Theatre of London; the Shakespeare Theatre Company; Mouvement Perpetuel and has co-created works with the Cirque Du Soleil; the National Ballet of Canada and Ballet BC. Ami performed with Compagnie Marie Chouinard, Compagnie Flak and the DanceOn Ensemble, Berlin and has taught throughout Europe, Canada and the USA including for the Juilliard School; Jacob’s Pillow; Boston Conservatory; Alvin Ailey School; Hollins University; CODARTS; Staatstheatre Kassel; B12 and is an Artistic Associate of the Springboard Project Montreal/New York. Ami co-authored for the anthology Back to the Dance Itself and has written articles on enactive cognition in the pedagogy of embodied mathematics. She is a certified Feldenkrais Practitioner.
