While he was just nine years old, Tom was a member of a hip-hop dance class at the Nifty Feet Dance School here in Wimbledon. His group even performed at the Richmond Dance Festival in 2006.
At the age of seven, Holland was diagnosed with Dyslexia, and that is why his family sent all the boys to private school so that they could get full attention. After attending Wimbledon College, Holland also went to BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in Croydon.
At this festival, Tom was seen by the choreographer of the play Billy Elliot The Musical, Peter Darling, who arranged for an audition for him. The director of the play thought Tom “had great potential and was a very natural actor.”
Other than hip-hop dancing, he is trained in ballet, acrobatics, and tap dancing. These helped him when he was acting in the musical. After Billy Elliot, the Musical ended in 2010, Tom moved on to voice-over for a Japanese animated movie Arrietty in English.
