Ms. Kim & Mr. Dmitry
Dmytry, born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, and Kimberly, born in San Diego, have both been dancing since the age of 5, with focused training in Latin Ballroom, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap, and Ballet.
Throughout their competitive journey, which continues today, their joint accomplishments include 12 ‘1st overall’ and ‘national champion’ titles in the United States, Ukraine, and Europe.
At 18 years old, Kimberly took a break from competing, when she moved to LA to receive her bachelors of science degree in Physics from the University of Southern California. During this time she was on the Trojan Dance Force and continued her training in LA to ensure dancing remained apart of her life. Kimberly was able to combine her passion for dancing with her study of physics when she wrote and presented a semester-long project specifically on the biomechanics of dancing. Her physics degree has provided her with a uniquely in-depth understanding of dance which has been of great benefit to her, both as an artist and a teacher.
Dmytry’s training and achievements in Ukraine provided him the opportunity to come to America all by himself at the young age of 16 years old. His career as a dancer and teacher has thrived rapidly ever since.
The couple devotes each day to their craft and could not be happier that it brought them together. Their commitment to the growth of their students is evident in their students’ accomplishments and national titles. But beyond that, Dmytry and Kimberly strive to facilitate in the growth of each of their students’ lifelong passion for dancing.
