The Opening Ceremonies included the Opening Parade, Athletes' and Adjudicators' Oaths, welcoming speeches and a special moment celebrating the 30-year anniversary of the Lithuanian DanceSport Federation. Congratulations for the Federation!
There were also two dance numbers, first the wonderful Lithuanian National dance „Till morning“, and after that one an energetic Breaking show.
The quarterfinal kicked-off in front of a live band and a full house about ten minutes behind schedule. But it was worth a wait as the couples have been really showing their best performances tonight!
