The "Žuvėdra" dancesport ensemble continues to win gold. This ensemble from the University of Klaipėda again won first place in the European Latin American group dance championship in Bremen Essen, Germany, on May 8, 2004, with second and third place taken by ensembles from Bremen and Bremerhafen in Germany.
Coaching "Žuvėdra" to such a high standard has been a continuing labour of love for professors Skaistė and Romaldas Idzelevičius from the Performing Arts Faculty of Klaipėda University. "Žuvėdra" are now getting ready to defend their World Championship gold in Minsk, Byelorussia later this year in November.
