Olmo’s Bloc LA page tells a little bit about the dancer. She started dancing at a very young age and continued to train. She trained with Broadway for three years and then moved into freelancing and underground dance. She moved to LA recently. The profile says, “Nadine Olmo is from Brea, California. She started dancing at the age of 4 and continued through her teenage years. After high school, she received a scholarship to the Broadway Dance Center program in New York City. She lived there for 3 years and branched out into the underground scene where she trained in hip hop, house, contemporary, african, whaacking and more.”
The profile also adds, “In 2012, Nadine moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams as a professional dancer. Nadine is a freestyle mover and aspires to open the minds to tell stories through truthful, organic movement.”
She joined Taylor Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour in 2017.
The dancer has an impressive repertoire of videos showcasing her immense talent for dance on YouTube. One example is a video posted by choreographer Dana Foglia in which Olmo and four other dancers dance to Britney Spear’s Slave for You.
So far, the extent of Olmo’s injuries and how long she will be absent from Taylor Swift’s tour is unknown. We wish her a speedy recovery.
