Nolan Padilla

Padilla Passion Project  

Austen Everett Foundation Athlete MVP

Nolan Padilla’s exceptional talent as lead choreographer for artists such as Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Backstreet Boys and more was the inspiration behind the formation of the Padilla Passion Project.


AEF’s David Padilla, a young baseball star who fought cancer, teamed up with his cousin Nolan to create the Padilla Passion Project. Nolan enlisted dancers from the Taylor Swift World Tour to visit kids in the hospital and dance for them. David passed shortly after the project began, but his legacy lives on as Nolan continues to visit kids in the hospital with his team of dancers, working to make kids smile.
