Christian Holder enjoyed a successful career as a leading dancer with the Joffrey Ballet in New York, working with most of the major choreographers of the 20th century. He has designed costumes for ballet companies and celebrities, including Tina Turner.
His performing career began as a child in London, where he attended the Corona Academy Stage School, acted in several British television series, and danced with his father’s company, Boscoe Holder and his Caribbean Dancers. After many years based in New York, his life in London now focuses on singing, painting, writing and archiving.
