Dmitry was born on May 21, 1963 in Moscow. Since childhood, he was fond of sports (hockey, football) and reading. Dmitry's grandmother, seeing his restless and active nature, decided to take him to choreography classes. Teachers soon noticed his talent and suggested sending the talented boy to a choreography school, which he successfully entered later in 1974. While in the school, Dmitry got very lucky with his teachers.

The growth of the future actor-dancer was influenced by such teachers as: Alla Georgievna Boguslavskaya, Evgenia Gerasimovna Farmanyants, Peter Antonovich Pestov, Gennady Garaevich Malkhasyants, and classical dance teacher Vladimir Arkadyevich Koshelev, whose class Dmitry graduated from in 1982 with a degree of "Ballet Artist".

In 2002, at the First Russian Competition of Ballet Dancers and Choreographers (Krasnodar), Dmitry received a winner's diploma for his work "Clock". In the same year he was awarded the state award-title Honored Artist of Russia.
