#ChloéArnold is a #choreographer, International #tapdancer, and director. She was born in Washington, D.C., of interracial parents. Her white French mother was a #moderndancer and educator; her father, an African-American #jazz enthusiast who played serious #jazz and bebop. At the age of six, Chloe's mother enrolled her in the Wheaton Studio of #Dance in Silver Spring, Maryland; where she was the only student of color. Returning to Washington, D.C., she began to study with Toni Lombre, her first black female teacher who was the artistic director of Taps & Company. Toni Lombre demanded that her dancers' study #ballet, #jazz, and #moderndance, as well as #tap. #ChloéArnold describes her experience working with Ms. Lombre as being one of the most developmental periods in her life. Toni Lombre turned her into a self-confident well-versed #dancer and helped her to progress as a performer.
In 1998, in New York, she enrolled as an undergraduate film major and is now a female entrepreneur that holds a degree from Columbia University. Arnold was soon becoming a singular figure as a #tapdancer, choreographer, and director, becoming the managing producer for #DebbieAllen Dance Academy; directing her own tap# ensemble, #SyncopatedLadies, billed as #"TheNextGenerationofTap".
