1. When did you start dancing?
Well technically I took my first dance class at the age of 5 which was a creative movement class and I moved into sports after my class session ended. I didn't really start dancing until I was 11 when I moved to Texas. I joined a competitive community outreach dance program hosted at Westwood High School called the All-Stars Unlimited. It was a great program, lots of fun, and I didn't really learn any terminology during that time, but that's where the love of dance began.

Dimitrius currently teaches on Saturdays at 10am - Dance AusTONE Fit and 12:15pm Hip Hop Basics!

1. When did you start dancing?

I started dancing at 16.  I was fortunate that my high school offered it as an elective.  I went in thinking I'd just learn hip hop, but my instructor made us learn ballet, jazz, modern, and how to choreograph along with hip hop.  I still visit once a year to go teach a class and talk about my experience as a student.

EAT!  I love to eat and Austin's food scene has grown so much so quickly it's hard to keep up.  Dinner with good friends and laughs are the best.
