Wyke Dance students have been involved with the Hull Dance Prize at the Hull Truck Theatre.
The event is led by Hull City Council and serves to launch the careers of newly established dance companies from Hull and the East Riding. The original choreography was performed to a live audience who voted for their favourite work, with the winning performance receiving funding to support their choreographic development.
Two former Wyke students submitted choreographic work as part of the Hull Dance Prize and worked with current students leading practical workshops.
Following his time at Wyke, former student Jon Beney trained at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD) and now works as a professional dance artist. He devised a piece with male trio JoinedUpDance based on the relationships between individuals and groups in society.
Having recently completed her training at the London School of Contemporary Dance (LSCD), Lottie Hanson will also took part in the competition, winning the audience vote. She is a founding member of LOC:US Dance Company who performed a piece exploring the notion of care.
