Nina Schwartz, born in Biberach a. d. Riss, accompanied a children's choir on stage at the age of six. As a multiple national prize winner at "Jugend musiziert", she began her studies at the State University of Music and Performing Arts (HMDK) Stuttgart (with Prof. André Marchand) at the age of 16.
After graduating from high school, she studied piano at the Rostock University of Music and Theatre (with Prof. Matthias Kirschnereit). During her music studies she became increasingly interested in acting and initiated interdisciplinary projects together with fellow students.

At the same time she can be seen as a pianist and protagonist in the short film "Aus der Seele" (directed by Holger Löwe), which is shown at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation New York in 2010.
Nina completes her acting studies, which she graduates in 2014, at the European Theater Institute Berlin.
