SEASON 18' WAS A WONDERFUL SUCCESS, WE CAN'T THANK THE COMMUNITY ENOUGH FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
Kylie Thompson has been choreographing at the youth, pre-professional and professional level since 2011. Her eclectic style is ever-evolving, taking influence from the many forms she has training in, particularly modern-jazz, hip hop and contemporary. Her professional company Kylie Thompson Dance was formed in 2017, and debuted their first full-length evening; Season 18', in January 2018.
She is also currently a member of the Garage Collective, a weekly meeting of emerging creators who are interested in collaborative exploration and dance creation. She choreographed for the collective in 2015. From 2014-2016 she co-directed alongside Amy Adams a small professional project-based company Point of View Dance Project, with whom she directed and performed in Wireless Connection, a 60-minute production that premiered in 2014 and was remounted again at the 2016 Toronto Fringe Festival. Kylie continues to produce work and you can often find her as part of various festivals including New Blue Festival of Emerging Dance, Dance Matters and Short Dances in Small Spaces.
In the commercial realm of the industry, Thompson has created work for the Toronto Original Choreographer’s Ball, for Canadian National Exhibition, and TIFF. She also often works with Youth and Pre-professional training companies including Rasasvada Dance Company, Dark Dance Company, Toronto Dance Project, and many other local studios across Ontario.
Thompson’s work is often created in collaboration with the dancers specific to the project. She employs improvisation to a great degree, and continues to explore contemporary partnering techniques, with a keen interest in developing a connection and language with the dancers first, and then diving in to creation of the actual work.
