Dominique Da Diva
Damir has been dancing since he was six years old. The first and only dance company he belonged to was Raduga, one of the oldest dance companies in Astrakhan City, his hometown. While at his peak, competitively dancing, Damir represented his city and country all over Europe. In Italy, he placed third in Latin and sixth in Standard. In France, he placed sixth again. In Bulgaria, he became an international laureate. While he continued to dance with the Raduga dance company, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Management and Tourism from Astrakhan State Technical University.
In 2005, Damir moved to the United States and started his teaching career with Fred Astaire Dance Studios. At the end of this contract there, he became an independent instructor under his own brand name, Premium Ballroom. Currently, he is in the nursing program at Tidewater Community College and will start a concurrent program at Old Dominion University in the Fall of 2014.
Damir plans to continue teaching ballroom while earning his second degree and well after becoming a Nurse Anesthetist, which is his ultimate goal. He definitely has a lot on his plate, but all of it is made possible with two very important ladies by his side: his wife, Monica, and their African Grey Parrot, Zuzu.
