EXUDE training module launched in January 2020 as a place for emerging dancers to gather and train. Although we can’t gather in studio together yet due to COVID-19 restrictions - let’s come together - online - to continue training, and keep connected with each other.

Kylie Thompson Dance is committed to creating safe spaces that are open and welcoming to all walks of life. We warmly welcome members of the BIPOC community and of the LGBTQ+ community.


Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT)

Progressing Ballet Technique is an innovative dance conditioning program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon in Australia. This training system develops a dancer’s muscle memory to improve their core stability, weight placement and alignment, as well as over-all strength and control. Dancers perform exercises using a fitness ball or resistance band. The tools give the dancer immediate feedback on their alignment while training specific muscle groups and coordinations required for ballet and other dance forms.

Masterclass with A’no:wara Dance Theatre's Barbara Diabo

Explore different styles, perspectives, and the meanings behind First Nations’ dances with Barbara Kaneratonni Diabo. Taking inspiration from cultural perspectives and practices, we will combine the past, present and future to create an understanding of this land through dance.

Masterclass with L-E-V Dance Company

An introduction to the work and world of Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar through a short improvisation based warm up followed by a section from L-E-V repertoire.



Masterclass with Compagnie Virginie Brunelle

Through warm-up exercises and sequences of movement specific to Virginie’s creations, the class will evolve towards the learning of an extract of Les corps avalés. Beyond the execution, what interests Virginie is accessibility to the human; the interpreter does not play a role, they are here and now, sometimes vulnerable, sometimes strong, but always true.

Masterclass with A.I.M's Jae Neal

Classes taught by A.I.M emphasize four of the company’s core movement values: exploration, musicality, abandonment and intuition. The opening warm-up sequence focuses on the fluidity of the spine, articulation, and core body strengthening; and then builds up to challenging, creative and invigorating phrase work. Students experience a personalized postmodern movement vocabulary full of intricate gestures and signature A.I.M moves.
