    Quilan Cue Arnold

    Quilan Cue Arnold

    Hip Hop Groove Foundation


    Quilan “Cue” Arnold (MFA) is a dance professional (dancer, choreographer, podcaster, producer, teacher) based out of Brooklyn, New York. He has been a member of companies such as Camille A. Brown and Dancers (NY), Rennie Harris Puremovement (PA), Abby Z and the New Utility (NY), and Enzo Celli Vivo Ballet (NY).

    Quilan’s work has been presented in a domestic and international milieu. His most recent choreographic work, “The Third Rail,” was premiered at the 2018 INSITU Site-Specific Festival in New York, and has been presented in 2019 at Hunter College and the American Dance Festival. Other recent credits include the International Human Rights Festival (NY), Steps on Broadway’s Performance Lab (NY), and the Emerging Choreographer Series (NY).

    Quilan is also the co-founder of the street dance podcast, “The Good Foot” and the executive director of the street dance documentary, “Build’N Shop,” which is partially funded by the 2018 Ohio State Dance Preservation Grant.

    As an educator Quilan currently serves as a faculty member at Hunter College and Gibney Dance Center in New York City. Visiting artist credits include: Bard College (NY); Towson University (MD); Ohio State University (OH); Rutgers University (NJ); University of Memphis (TN); and New York University (NY). Additionally, Quilan has served as faculty at Steps on Broadway and Mark Morris Dance Center, in addition to hosting an online hip-hop dance class, “Get Groovy.”

    Class Description:

    Hip-hop Groove Foundations focuses on essential hip- hop techniques (i.e. isolations, polyrhythm, footwork, groove) as a way for students to deepen the understanding of their body, and to broaden their tools for individual expression. The class ebbs-and-flows between rigorous technical content through drills, combinations, and improvisatory cypher explorations. Students should expect to leave class kinesthetically, culturally, and spiritually awakened with deep connections to afro-centric aesthetics through a hip-hop lens.
