In 1998 “Irish dancing studio” was established.
Ruta Kapustaite (teacher and choreographer)
|Description||In 1998, on a small street of Riga, an “Irish dancing studio” was established. Only a few people knew about its existence. These enthusiasts met three times a week to master the precise and graceful steps of the Irish dance in a united rhythm. Both the three years old children and the grown-ups, tired of daily routines, hurried to Ruta Kapustaite – the studio establisher, their teacher and just a good friend – to devote themselves to the magic of the dance.|
|Awards||Having advanced to competitive level, the studio began to fight its way toward the European countries, where Ruta’s and her team’s efforts were highly acclaimed. The friendly collective took root in such organizations as Irish and Lithuanian Embassies. Ronan Hardiman, the composer of the breathtaking music of “Lord of the Dance”, with gratitude approved of the studio’s work. And but a few years ago, Ruta found her way to the Riga Choreographic School, where she cooperated with Regīna Kaupuža, creating a new performance for children, which to this day is performed on the stage of Latvian National Opera and brings joy to both the young and the grown-ups.|
