Juggler, fire juggler and martial arts instructor
Dmitrijs can easily tame not only fire. Since 1997, he has been practicing Oriental martial arts. He has Category C (Jiu-Jitsu) qualification and has worked as an instructor for 16 years. Between 2007 and 2010, Dmitrijs mastered his skills in the circus studio Arlekīns under the guidance of Mihails Basmanovs.
Dmitrijs has no stage fright as for more than 10 years he has been performing as a fire artist and juggler in various events in Latvia and abroad. In 2006, Dmitrijs founded an association of jugglers and fire artists called Fire Spirit.
In the Riga Circus School, Dmitrijs will teach the basics of juggling and balancing disciplines e.g. a balance board, walking on stilts and riding a unicycle. By the way, moving around on his unicycle is part of Dmitrijs’ daily routine. Perhaps you will be able to join him soon.
