Dmitry Chaplin from "Dancing with the Stars" is one of the professional dancers on the ABC ballroom comptetion series. For Season 12, he is partnered with supermodel Petra Nemcova.

We first saw this young pro transition from "So You Think You Can Dance" to "Dancing with the Stars" in Season 8, when Chaplin was paired up with Holly Madison. They were eliminated in the third week. Chaplin shuffled back for more action in Season 9 with celebrity Mya. This time around, he fared much better; they were the runner-ups.

Dmitry Chaplin's ballroom dancing career began at the age of 12 in his home town of Rostov–on-Don in Russia. His perfect combination of technique and performance soon got him noticed by judges and teachers in his home country.

After moving to the United States, his commitment to dance brought him to work with some of the best coaches in the ballroom world, including Louis Van Amstel and Shirley Ballas. Dmitry studied in both America and the United Kingdom, and began representing the U.S. at famous ballroom competitions around the world as one of the best dancers in the Under 21 division.

In 2006, Dmitry's dance career took a different course when he joined the Season 2 cast of the hit TV show "So You Think You Can Dance." He became one of the Top 10 dancers, representing the ballroom world and establishing himself as an audience favorite. In the following season, Dmitry was invited back to choreograph for the show both in the U.S and for its international versions.

Dmitry became the winner in the 2002 English Open Championships and a semi-finalist in the 2003 International Open to the World.

That same year, Dmitry became the Open to the World Grandprix Champion (held in Tokyo) and was a semi finalist in the Dutch Open World Championships. In 2006 he was invited to represent the United States in the U.S. National Championships where he became a finalist.

Dmitry also performed in the 2008 Idol Gives Back fundraiser for American Idol, and served as a judge the Broadway Dreams Dance Competition in Canada that same year.
