Tommy Franzen

CHOREOGRAPHER

Tommy started his dance training in Sweden, where he is originally from. Initially he was only interested in streetdance classes but had his eyes soon opened for other dance styles.

Tommy began working professionally soon after that at the age of 14 in the musical “Joseph”. He stayed in Sweden until the age of 19 going from musical to musical before he got a scholarship for a 3-year performing arts diploma course at the Urdang Academy in London.

Tommy is probably mostly recognised as the runner-up of BBC 1’s “So You Think You Can Dance” 2010 but some might have seen him in Mamma Mia – The Movie, The Pepsi Max Advert “Can Fu”, the Handover Ceremonies at Bejing Olympics 2008 etc.

After working professionally as a performing artist for 16 years, Tommy has in the recent years also dwelled into choreography. Most recently he choreographed for ZooNation’s “Message in a Bottle” as well as performing in the show.

Tommy has also been nominated an Olivier Award 2012 for Outstanding Achievement in Dance.
