Jared Grimes Joins Radio City Show

Jared Grimes taps to Singing in the Rain

Donna Reed Foundation national scholar is making a splash

Jared Grimes is dancing in the rain - literally - at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

Grimes, who was a 2001 Donna Reed Foundation scholarship recipient in dance, has joined the cast of The New York Spring Spectacular, a show that features the famed Rockettes.

The production includes a splashy production number with Grimes, Derek Hough of Dancing With the Stars fame and the Rockettes tap-dancing exuberantly as 500 gallons of heated water pour down on them. The production runs through May 3.

Last year at age 30, Grimes was named outstanding male dancer in a Broadway show at the Fred and Adele Astaire Awards in New York. He won for his tap dancing in the Cotton Club-era musical revue, After Midnight. He then performed in the Tony Awards broadcast.
