Quilan "Cue" Arnold
Quilan “Cue” Arnold is a professional dancer, teacher, and choreographer based out of Baltimore, Maryland and New York City. A graduate from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Integrative Arts and a minor in Dance, Cue worked with faculty members Kikora Franklin, Elisha Clark Halpin, and Steve Broadnax. Upon graduation Cue studied at The Ohio State University and received his M.F.A. in Dance. During his graduate tenure, he worked with choreographers such as Rennie Harris, Bebe Miller, Tine Salling, Susan Hadley, and Teena Marie Custer. As a graduate assistant specializing in Hip-hop dance, Cue also taught the Hip-hop dance courses at the university. The widespread popularity of these courses on the university campus and beyond inspired Cue to form the Columbus-based business, onCUE (which uses dance to educate students on the impact of Hip-hop culture beyond its music). Cue’s recent credits include a full-time faculty appointment at Towson University, joining the faculty at Gibney Dance Center and Mark Morris Dance Center, as well as dancing and choreographing in international milieu (most recently in Brazil).
