“Chloe Arnold…a tap artist whose name should be noted for future reference; seek her out if you can. With In The Spirit a sequence of improvography, she served notice that a woman tapper can do anything a guy can…she’s a terrific musician who can propose a distinctive rhythmic pattern and then fashion variations on that pattern in arresting ways, drawing out some phrases, altering the accents in others.”_-Voice of Dance, Allan Ulrich

“Arnold, a tapper with sizzle to burn.”_-L.A. Times, Victoria Loosleaf

“Chloe Arnold [will] blow you away in her solo”_-Chicago Tribune, Sid Smith

"Tu Eres Loco, set in a salsa nightclub…heats things up to a sizzle with help from the luminous Chloe Arnold…"_-Chicago Sun Times, Heidi Weiss

"You can't do [Idlewild] a 1930's period piece without having tap in it," says Hinton Battle who enlisted tap stars like Jason Samuels Smith and Chloe Arnold for the project."                         -Dance Spirit, Jen Jones

"This number segued into a hard hitting, yet innately feminine Afro Blue, performed to perfection by miss Chloe Arnold. Adorned in a bewitching shawl-top that enhanced every movement. Chloe left the audience breathless to say the least."_- International Tap Association, Sam Katz
