I've got a costume that incorporates LED lights cued to music. I need to re-setup the costume and am trying to find the best Arduino (if possible) tech for them. How do I do so?

So I'm turning this getup
into a costume that I can wear multiple times. In this video the LED lights were stuck directly onto my skin, and there was a pretty big controller attached to them that had a wireless receiver and battery pack.
To make the act more feasible I'm getting a bodysuit made, but right now I'm stuck on the electronics. I no longer have the controller, but from asking around I was told that a smaller Arduino board works well.
The light cues are written for DMXControl as an .STG file. Is there a way to make this Arduino-readable?
What sort of board would be suitable for my needs? Can an Arduino board fit all that?
(I'm not totally au fait on how Arduinos or similar tech work, so apologies if my terminology is shot.)
