Olivia Cafiero has spent over 13 years dancing and training in her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida. Starting competitive dance at the age of six, she has worked with numerous reputable teachers and dancers around the country. Taking class from professionals such as Christina Grady, Brian Friedman, Tricia Miranda, Joe Tremaine, and many others has helped Olivia recognize her strong passion for dance and encourage her to take a position with Campus Dance Academy as a dance instructor.
Olivia began her dance training under the instruction of Cathy Finne at Studio 1014 from the ages of 6-14. At 1014, Olivia trained in styles such as ballet, jazz, hip hop, lyrical, acro, and tap. While training in these styles she also attended numerous regional and national dance competitions. To further extend her dance training, Olivia attended Lavilla Middle School of the Arts as a dance major and Douglas Anderson High School as a dance major where she was also a part of the National Dance Honor Society. In high school, Olivia attended Britney Boyd Dance Company and was on the Two Hype Hip Hop crew where she also took part in many competitions and dance conventions. Through Douglas Anderson and these conventions, Olivia has taken additional dance classes which included styles such as African, ballroom, contemporary, musical theatre, and jazz funk.
Olivia is currently a student at Jacksonville University and was awarded the “outstanding freshman” award last year for all freshman dance majors and the “new fin” award for all freshman athletes while she was a part of the JU Sirens dance team. Outside of school, Olivia is also on the Jacksonville Jaguar NFL cheerleading team.
Olivia is so excited to share her passion and knowledge of dance to schools in Jacksonville and continue her journey with Campus Dance Academy.
