Jaredd Martin was finally able to cultivate his long time passion for dance through his high school and DanceZone studio, and he’s taken every opportunity to dance ever since. He joined the HTE Dance staff upon graduation, and spent several years traveling and choreographing for the company. Jaredd attended Sam Houston State University where he won two NDA national championship titles and was awarded All-American with the Orange Pride Dance Team. He has enjoyed numerous opportunities such as choreographing in various states for MA Dance, teaching students of all ages at the Oriental Arts Education Center, and performed in Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl LI Halftime Show. Jaredd is a creative, engaged, and devoted artist, and is very excited to have joined the In-Step family.
