McArthur has devoted herself to exploring movement through various compositional methods. She believes in creating a connection between the dancers that reflect a dependent interaction and a sense of community on stage. Her work has been performed at many venues in New York City and Rochester, NY, as well as, within Mississippi, Florida, and internationally in Wales and South Africa. Her works, Babel and Heaps of Three, were invited to the American Dance Guild Festival in New York City for two consecutive years. Her MFA thesis choreography, Intercede, was selected by faculty to represent The College at Brockport at the 2012 Dancewave: Kids Café Festival in Brooklyn, NY.
She has performed for Mariah Maloney Dance, James Hansen Dance, most notably on the Inside/Out stage at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and as guest performer for the New York based Treeline Dance Works. Post undergraduate degree, she performed for the South African company, 13th Floor, for two years.
