Bremer was born in Amsterdam, New York and began her career as a dancer at Radio City Music Hall in New York at the age of 16. Spotted by a talent scout, she was taken to Hollywood where her screen test impressed Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer mogul Louis B. Mayer. An accomplished dancer, she was also considered to display potential as a dramatic actress.
