Emmy Nominated Choreographer Chloé Arnold Makes Film Acting DebutEmmy-nominated choreographer and International tap star Chloé Arnold stars in IN A BEAT which will be released free on Youtube this Friday, July 10 at 6pm PST / 9pm EST. The film features Ms. Arnold along with Cameron Elie in breakout performances inspired by the true story of a young autistic boy. The film also features Arthur Duncan, Karen McDonald, Maud Arnold and Internet sensations, The Syncopated Ladies.

IN A BEAT, the first film by filmmakers Natasha Mynhier and Jeff Hamerton, is a heartfelt drama set in 2013 that tells the unique story of Darrel's (Cameron Elie) coming-of-age journey to independence. His mother (Chloé Arnold), a caring single parent with little to no resources, struggles to juggle her aspirations as a tap dancer alongside raising her autistic son. To complement the 'parent perspective' on autism, the film highlights numerous unique moments of Darrel's undoubted empathy as he observes his mother and invests in her dreams. His loving personality presents itself throughout the film, culminating when he convinces her to let him stay home for a few hours while she attends the biggest audition of her career. But when unexpected circumstances surface, he must find a unique way to cope with his meltdown alone.

"Being part of IN A BEAT has been a powerful and impacting experience. THE VOICE of Black autistic children has not been amplified enough and through this film we hope to bring more awareness, attention, passion and activation," said Chloe Arnold. "Being a producer, choreographer and the actress in the film was truly empowering and also a great moment of reflection, growth and expansion."

The film release will be followed by a Q&A at 6:30pm PST / 9:30pm EST on Chloe Arnold's Instagram Live @chloearnoldtaps.To learn more please visit www.37laines.com/.
