Dmitry is native to Russia and studied ballet at the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in Saint Petersburg. Upon his graduation, Mr. Trubchanov joined the Mariinsky Theater (formerly known as Kirov ballet) as a company member. While with the company, Dmitry danced soloist roles in many classical ballets and was invited as a guest performer with the Universal Ballet in Soul, South Korea. In his four years with Mariinsky Theater Dmitry traveled extensively throughout the world.

In the late 1990s Mr. Trubchanov moved to the United States and joined Cincinnati Ballet. For the next ten years Dmitry danced as a principal dancer with the company, dancing a vast variety of classical and contemporary ballets by renowned choreographers. He was also featured in documentary “Do Not Go Gently” and in a recreation of “La Sonnambula” for George Balanchine archives. In both cases he closely worked with the legendary Frederick Franklin, C.B.E., who was a premier dancer with Ballets Russes. Mr. Trubchanov and Mr. Franklin, C.B.E. worked together on recreating many forgotten ballets by Leonide Massine.

After Cincinnati Ballet, Dmitry moved to Denver and danced with Colorado Ballet as a principal dancer until his retirement in 2015.

Throughout his dance career, Dmitry danced as a guest artist with numerous ballet companies in the U.S. and abroad. He has been invited to perform at several ballet festivals including: Vail International Ballet Festival, Miami International Ballet Festival dedicated to Vladimir Vasiliev and Ekaterina Maximova, and Fukuoka Ballet Gala Festival in Fukuoka, Japan.

After Mr. Trubchanov’s retirement, he moved to Kansas City, Missouri and joined the faculty of Kansas City Ballet School. Dmitry also served as a ballet master in-residence for the Kansas City Ballet Company. Currently Dmitry holds the position of Men’s Program Coordinator with Kansas City Ballet School and Associate Director of Kansas City Youth Ballet.
