Before swingdance, Dmitry used to go in for different kinds of sports, like tennis, soccer, hockey, karate etc. Once he saw people dancing to swing music in a famous jazz club, and that was the beginning of a lifetime addiction. Dmitry started taking classes, attending various swing dance events, competing, teaching – and he enjoys everything about it so much, that he dances all swing dance styles. Today Dmitry is among the top Russian dancers.
After formed a dance pair with Dasha, each one unleashed true potential and set new pinnacles to go onwards and upwards. Today, Dima and Dasha are one of the best dance couples on the lindy hop scene, both in Russia and in Europe.
Successful dance instructors, Dasha and Dima gladly share their experience with students and “infect” more and more people with a virus named “lindy hop”. Perhaps it is this unusual approach to teaching that was noticed by TV producers and resulted in the couple being invited to TV shows as choreographers and dancers.
