Tamara has been a dancer since she was five. She began her ballet training in Madrid at the Victor Ullate School and Madrid Royal Conservatory of Dance. Later, she went on to make her professional debut with Ballet de la Comunidad de Madrid.
When she first came to London, she had no experience, no special qualifications, and didn't speak the language. She worked for a very low-paid job, with the Scottish National Ballet.
Speaking to the Evening Standard on 27th February 2018, Tamara Rojo detailed her relationship with her Mexican boyfriend, Isaac Hernández, a senior dancer at the English National Ballet.
Isaac was named the arts and tourism ambassador for Mexico. Also, he became one of the youngest people to receive the Outstanding Artist Award from Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

As of the interview date, Tamara and Isaac had been together for a year and a half. Also, they never kept their involvement a secret, hoping there was no animosity towards what they felt for one another.

Isaac, being 16 years her junior ruffled criticism of all sorts, to which Tamara addressed:
I’m a very private person, so I did find it quite difficult. I wondered if it would be the same if it was an older man with a younger woman. But I’m very fortunate to have found somebody I want to spend my life with and who shares my passion. I’m happy – but I feel that is also something that bothers people!
Further, she added that the age gap does not seem to be there in between them, and she would "highly recommend it" to other women as well.
Earlier, Tamara held a relationship with fellow dancer Alan Jones.
