BA Animation students invited to practice life drawing at English National Ballet rehearsals
In November, BA Animation students were invited by English National Ballet to draw their dancers warming up and practicing for a performance of Romeo and Juliet at the Palace Theatre in Manchester.
‘Life drawing is a key element to the animation course’, said Andy Wyatt, Animation course leader, ‘and to be given the chance to draw some world class dancers in action was an opportunity that was too good to miss.’
‘Animation is all about movement and performance, and to study these dancers was an amazing experience for the students.’
An exhibition of the drawings is planned for the New Year.
