A former United States Eastern Dance Sport Rising Star Champion, Jared has been an active ballroom professional in the Massachusetts area for 12 years. He is an active member with the North American Dance Teachers Association with degrees in International Latin & International Standard as well as a current member with Dance Vision International Dance Association with degrees in American Style Rhythm & Smooth. Jared has won Top Teacher Awards many times for Dancing a la Carte, A Camp for All Seasons and The Commonwealth Classic. With thanks to their awesome staff and hardworking students PSM has won Top Studio Awards four years in a row at Dancing a la Carte and again at the 2015 Commonwealth Classic. Jared even scored the Dancing with the Stars Tour Dance Award in 2007 at the DCU Center, formerly the Worcester Centrum.
In 2012, Jared joined forces with Sara Zirolla to compete professionally in American Smooth, which includes Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz. Together they have trained with some of the best coaches in the world and have used that training to continuously improve in their rankings at competitions.
Jared took over the ownership and artistic direction of Poise Style and Motion in April 2010 and since then, with the help of his very capable staff, has created a new excitement that is seen in the large number of students that have joined the studio. In 2015, the studio topped their 2013 record of having the largest number of students competing with their instructors.
Jared’s goal is to continue to increase excitement for ballroom dancing and Dancesport in the Worcester area by offering quality ballroom dance instruction and first class competition training for all ages and levels as well as hosting exciting regularly scheduled dance events for the general public.
