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.

“Exude was a very valuable experience for me, it was an incredibly welcoming environment, created both by Kylie and the other participants. The weekly sessions brought some much needed consistency to my training, and allowed me to focus on developing the unique skills and new movement qualities that Kylie proposes. The overall feeling was so upbeat and positive, I felt more open to trying new things every week!”
