This week’s installment of Broadway.com’s Gotta Dance! series features Cameron Adams, who plays glitzy chorus girl Olive in the new Gershwin tuner Nice Work If You Can Get It. Adams, who was raised in Myrtle Beach, began dancing in church plays at age four before getting “whipped into shape” by her dance teachers as a preteen. The standout made her Broadway debut at age 17 in the 2000 revival of The Music Man. After dancing in eight Broadway shows, Adams admits she’s gotten “spoiled” working with choreography greats Susan Stroman, Kathleen Marshall and more. Click below to watch this self-proclaimed tomboy show some “va-va-va-voom” in a glamorous photo shoot with Matthew Murphy, then see Adams' impressive dance moves in Nice Work If You Can Get It at the Imperial Theatre.
Watch the video below to find out how Adams went from starring in church plays to dancing on the Great White Way!
