Jaered developed his growing interest in choreography whilst studying at the Royal Ballet School in London and then went on to win second prize in the School's annual Ursula Morton competition.

Jaered danced with the Royal New Zealand Ballet from September 2008 - 2012. Jaered's own tribute to Lady Gaga, created during an in-house choreographic workshop, became a viral sensation on YouTube in 2010 and achieved global recognition. It gained 175,000 views in 2 weeks and became the most watched YouTube video in New Zealand that month.

In 2012 Jaered created a work called 'Feral' in collaboration with composer Robbie Ellis and the Royal New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, this work received rave reviews.

"Jaered Glavin's 'Feral', to Robbie Ellis's composition of the same name, is an aptly named wild romp through the antics of creatures from far, or perhaps of the wild side within us all. Spirited."
