Jarod comes to us as a Minnesota native, growing up in Southern MN and attending Saint Mary’s University where he recently graduated with his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Dance and Art. From a young age, fitness and exercise has been a part of his lifestyle. He started as a devoted distance runner in middle school and slowly shifted his active lifestyle over to various dance genres in college including Jazz, Modern, Musical Theatre, Ballroom, Hip-Hop and Ballet.
Currently he dances and performs with various non-profit dance companies throughout the Minneapolis area. Jarod is thrilled to be a part of the Haute Barre team and to share his knowledge of the dance and fitness world.
“For years I have been taking multiple dance classes and then head down the street to the local gym to drop in on a Pilates class followed by a yoga class. It was crazy! Finding Haute Barre has allowed me to combine all three without losing my dance edge. I love it!”
