He found his passion for Latin and Ballroom Dance early and trained in several dance clubs with World Champions. The range of his professional experience involves commercial work in films and music videos; collaborations with world class companies. His highlight of 2018 was obtaining the bronze medal at the World Championship Latin in Paris in August. Tom is currently creating his own choreographic work, shown on several stages in the UK.

Ballroom Dance Company tutors

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
