Jared Grimes

Donna Reed Foundation national scholar performs with Wynton Marsalis

Jared Grimes teamed up with Wynton Marsalis and Lil Buck for a recent appearance on the late night show, performing “Petite Site (for Savion) Movement II.” It was part of their promotion of Marsalis' “Spaces” performance at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, where he is artistic director.

Grimes, who was a 2001 Donna Reed Foundation scholarship recipient in dance, performed in last year's Radio City Music Hall production of "The New York Spring Spectacular," a show that featured the famed Rockettes.

Grimes was named outstanding male dancer in a Broadway show at the Fred and Adele Astaire Awards in New York in 2014. He won for his tap dancing in the Cotton Club-era musical revue, “After Midnight.” He then performed in the Tony Awards broadcast.
