Dance Lessons

Jared began his dancing career in Pittsburgh when a friend dragged him to the local social dance at Swing City. He had such a great time and started taking lessons! Since 2008, Jared has been traveling the country and dancing in various cities such as L.A., Chicago, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Virginia Beach, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Columbus and Ann Arbor. Never forgetting how he himself started out, Jared strives to make every person he dances with feel welcome and fuels their confidence by making the experience light-hearted and fun. The Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, and Blues are Jared's favorite styles, but he is a avid lover of all dance.
