When you meet Maud Arnold, the first thing you notice is her enormous smile. Then maybe her hair—a mass of spiral curls that radiate out to frame her beaming face. But once she starts moving, it’s all about the dance. Her taps are crisp, and she finds interesting rhythms within the music. As a performer, she’s alternately soft and sassy, delicate and hard-hitting, sometimes a little wild but always intent and invested. She’s a natural entertainer.
Maud’s stage presence and charisma have earned her the respect and admiration of her peers. “What I admire about Maud is how excited I get watching her move,” says fellow tapper Michelle Dorrance. “Her lines are huge! She’s borderline flamboyant, but it’s not contrived. It’s genuine and controlled.”
Maud Arnold, one of the DMV’s rising stars, has been featured on the cover of Dance Spirit Magazine in recognition of the work that she has been putting in with the DC Tap Fest and other projects.
