On June 3rd, for the first time in Lithuanian history World of Dance was held in Lithuania. Dancers were competing in 3 different categories and were able to get a title of the best dancer. The winning crew became "V-Team" from dance studio "Me Gusta", Kaunas, who have already been champions of Lithuania in a row of years, also winners in European contests and figuring in top 10 best dance teams of the world. By winning dancers got an honor to represent Lithuania and the Baltic states (as in the competition were competing crews from Sweden, Germany, Estonia, etc.) in the super finals of the event in USA – Los Angeles, California. The finals will take place on 22nd of July.

So far it is the biggest achievement in crew dancing of Lithuanian hip hop and young dancers would be honored to travel to Los Angeles and make the name of country famous and the nation proud. V-Team dancers truly believe they can prove that such small country as Lithuania also has talented and extremely good international level dancers.

Today V-team is trying hard to find support from government and businesses, so they could travel to the finals. Flight tickets are getting more and more expensive every day and the team is trying to hold their last hopes that their dream would come true. For now, they have collected 2520 euro – 1200 from private business and the rest from online crowdfunding where anyone can help. It is still far from their goal, which is more than 50000 euro, but they still expect to reach it and to become a part of countries historical event.
