Dance students at York College took rehearsals to a new level when they visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park to research animal movements in preparation for their performance of ‘Innate Brutality’ at the College’s Alan Ayckbourn Theatre.

With eight different dance pieces in the styles of ballet, contemporary, lyrical and circus acrobatics (to represent animals of the sea), the performance tackled the subject of animal cruelty, covering topics such as captivity, neglect and hunting.

Dance tutor Emma Fawcett said: “First year Extended Diploma Dance students began the project in October and worked extremely hard to perfect various elements of the performance. They involved themselves in lots of research including going to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park on a behind the scenes tour in order to embody the animals through character and bring intention to the pieces. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and worked professionally in rehearsal and in the final performances.”
