Meet Vaidas and Jurga Skimelis
Meet the professional dancers – Vaidas and Jurga, from the heart of Europe, have passed down quality education to their students while at the same time working as a team to direct group classes, camps, and workshops for many years. With every new student, their passion to educate dancers grew and their bond to the art became stronger until opportunity paved the way to the develop their own school, the Skimelis Dance Academy, which reflects the same passion for dance that the owners are so proud of.
Among their many years of teaching, Vaidas and Jurga have coached many high level dancers in different age categories, some of which even became National champions. Other students of theirs became multiple times representatives of USA in the World Championships, finalists of World Latin Championships, finalists in prestigious competitions such as Junior Blackpool, and winners in other varied competitive championships. All of these dancers are from Bay Area and have been trained at DanceVita ballroom, coincidentally owned by Vaidas and Jurga as well as Tomas and Aira in city of San Mateo. These four dancers from Lithuania shared both passion and experience, and thus got great results not just for the ballroom community they built at the studio, but also for the entire Bay Area community!!! www.dancevita.com
