Today I made my first visit to a second year dance group. Due to the snow only 3 students managed to get in but that was to my advantage. Fewer students gave me more of a chance to keep track of who was doing what. The speed and variety of the dance moves was a challenge to capture and I was glad of the practice I had got from the drama group. I did several single sketches but again, it was the composite drawings that showed most promise. One drawing of a group routine (thankfully repeated several times) built up into a dancing crowd. I want to develop this idea on a larger scale (currently working on A4) and bringing in some colour.
Many thanks to the tutor and students for allowing me to take photos and short film clips for reference. Some of the movements were far too complex to capture effectively in a one off sketch.
