About her technique class:
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.
