 "The Jared Grimes Feel is debuting a 75 minute non-stop rush of music and dance concert by world renowned tap dancer and protégé of Wynton Marsalis, Jared Grimes."

Jared Grimes is a breath of fresh air in the world of the arts where he is heavily making his mark in Tap and Hip-Hop/Street Jazz. On numerous occasions, he has danced alongside legends such as Wynton Marsalis Gregory Hines, Ben Vereen, Jerry Lewis, Fayard Nicholas and also performed for Barack Obama and Ted Kennedy at the Kennedy Center.

Grimes has toured with Musical legend, Mariah Carey, under the choreography of Marty Kudelka, and danced for artists such as Common, Salt-n-Pepa, Envogue, Busta Rhymes and the Roots. Jared's theater credits include, Twist directed by Debbie Allen, Babes in Arms at the Goodspeed Opera House choreographed by Randy Skinner, Cotton Club Parade directed by Warren Carlyle, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, directed by John Rando and Broadway Underground directed by himself. Grimes has appeared in commercials for Coca-Cola, Subway, MTV and television shows such as CBS' "Star Search," "Showtime at the Apollo," ABC Family's "Dance Fever" and "The Jerry Lewis Telethon."

Grimes made his choreography debut in Cirque Du Soleil's, Banana Shpeel off-broadway, choreographed commercials for Chilis and also assisted choreography with Kristin Denehy for Macy's popular Kids Bop commercial.

Reviews:

"Mr. Grimes's solo was a dazzlingly long and brilliantly sustained tour de force"
Alastair Macaulay- New York Times

"Jared Grimes (an excellent Tapper)"
Steven Suskin- Variety

"Jared Grimes lives up to the title of "Goin' Nuts" for his ferocious tap dancing routine."
Frank Scheck- New York Post

"Tap Mathematician," a dance solo choreographed and executed by Jared Grimes, brought down the house."
Steven Holden- New York Times

"For sheer wow factor, though, it's hard to top the wonderful Grimes, whose jumping splits and other feats in tap shoes, especially in "Tap Mathematician," are matched only by the heavenly expressions on his face - the term "infectious grin" doesn't begin to cover it."
