Jeremy Arnold

Tap Instructor


Jeremy Arnold asked his mother for ‘tappin’ shoes at age three while watching Savion Glover on Sesame Street.  She said ‘yes.’  Jeremy began his training at the Betsy Daily School of Performing Arts in suburban Philadelphia.  In high school Jeremy started commuting to New York City weekly as a member of the Tap City Youth Ensemble, directed by the American Tap Dance Foundation.   He received his B.A. cum laude, from Muhlenberg College in 2012 where he double majored in Dance and Media and Communications.  While at Muhlenberg, Jeremy performed in Charles O. Anderson’s Rite at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Choreographed the mainstage production of Merrily We Roll Along, and was the 2012 recipient of the Dorothy and Dexter Baker Foundation Award in Dance.   Jeremy has been a member of the nationally touring Shelley Oliver Tap Dancers since 2009.  After graduating, Jeremy moved to New York City where he danced with Chloe Arnold’s Apt. 33.  In 2013 Jeremy started working with Charles O Anderson’s Dance Theater X.  This past April, he had the privilege of performing their new work Restless Natives in the Fuzebox Festival in Austin and in NYC at New York Live Arts, Live Ideas.   The demand for Jeremy’s choreography and master classes has allowed him to travel the country and establish lasting relationships with the next generation of dancers.  Jeremy has served on the faculty of Tap Ties, Dance Olympus/Dance America, International Dance Challenge, Dance Masters of America and the Cecchettti Council of America.
