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...
