Business Description

ARC in Movement LLC is a Performance, Education, and Creation company, led by Alicia Cutaia. ARC is a unique combination of Fire, Dance, and Circus, creating bold, athletic performances in contemporary jazz, ballet, and acro styles along with the highest level of professional movement training. ARC was formed to present original works, instruct movers of all kinds and create new works for others. Ms. Cutaia’s experience as an award-winning choreographer, international professional dancer, and instructor makes ARC a one-of-a-kind performance and teaching experience.

ARC in Movement can create choreography for many different modalities from concert dance, stage performance, competition dance, circus acts, and artistic sports. ARC can create a full work that includes music, theme, and costuming or guide you through activities that will help you create your own. Ms. Cutaia is also a SAFE® BARRE certified instructor, one of only 4 in the United States. This is an amazing technique that combines ballet with biomechanics which helps the body feel balanced, lengthened, and open. Any type of mover would benefit from this instruction.
