Try new restaurants. I'm a foodie!

3. Hometown?

Denton, TX

4. Who is your inspiration?

Goodness, so many people - Right now, Chi Chi and Jackie Roese have inspired me. These women can see the gifts in others (especially other women) and lift them up. I'm not sure why women tear each other up, we have such low self esteems of ourselves to start. I'm inspired by any woman that has enough confidence to be able to see the positive in others and help them achieve their goals. It isn't common, but it should be. 

5. What are some of your non-dancing hobbies?

Golf, Rowing, and triathlons.

6. What is your favorite dance-related experience?

I used to be a part of a song/performance group at Church and we would do partner dancing. I think I enjoyed it becau...

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.

2. What is your favorite thing to do in Austin?

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.

3. Hometown?

I was born in California, I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but I consider Austin my hometown, to be honest.  It's where I grew up the most.

4. Who is your inspiration?

Too many to list.  A couple (for various reasons) include CL of 2NE1, Ellen Degeneres, Anthony Bourdain, Joan Crawford, and my good friend Kari...

The New Year at Dance Austin Studio is bringing in lots of new adult dance classes with new instructors, styles, and levels! 

This year, we're excited to bring more Guest Master Class instructors! We're kicking off the best year yet with our first guest, Yanis Marshall on January 5th, 2017 teaching both Street Jazz and Heels!

Our master classes are growing, and we're excited to grow artistically and athletically! 

I've wanted to burst out and tell the world all about the new classes in 2017. Now that they're finally posted on our DAS website, I can tell everybody about it! Blabbing on our new DAS blog was my second thought to start sharing. The first was telling people on Facebook because well... it's the Social Media Age and all the rage. After creating a survey for our students to tell us what they wanted to see in 2017, we put together an incredible schedule with your response levels. Lyrical Hip Hop won the most popular vote!
