Kyall is a Naarm/Melbourne based Australian contemporary dance artist. Their career so far has focused on finding a balance of performance, choreography and teaching work. By finding how these three areas can compliment and feed into each other, Kyall is passionate about increasing the accessibility of dance through youth and community work. They are a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts 2015 and since then have danced for Tasdance, Antony Hamilton Projects, Chunky Move, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, Opera Australia, The Delta Project and Liquidskin Dance Company. In 2017-2018 Kyall undertook an 8 month international residency program with DanceBox in Kobe, Japan, and then spent 3 months in Sweden as a member of ilYoung 2018. Kyall has engaged with community youth groups and schools as a teacher and choreographer, examples of this being the Arts Centre Melbourne/Matthew Bourne ‘Lord Of The Flies’ project, the 2019 Dance Massive work ‘Simulcast’, and Stephanie Lake Company’s 2020 Melbourne Fringe work ‘Multiply’ and Liesel Zink’s 2023 community work ‘Us and All of This”. Through their work they have represented/taught for The Victorian College of the Arts, Chunky Move, Ausdance Victoria, Arts Centre Melbourne, DRILL, Transit Dance and The Space Dance and Arts Centre. In 2020 they designed Chunky Move’s new set of education offerings “Experiences for Young People”, based off of current chunky move repertoire. In 2022 they worked as Community Dance Artist helping to bring together the 2022 Moomba parade, as a Community Producer for Tamara Cubas’s ‘Multitud’ as part of the RISING festival, and as Co-Artistic Director of the Australian Youth Dance Festival. They currently work as one of the Tasdance Artistic Associates, and as Artistic Director to the preprofessional youth dance company Yellow Wheel.
