After 19 weeks of dance contest Katarzyna Niemyćko was announced the queen of dance in Lithuania! Together with her dance partner Dainius Dimša they won the first prize in the dance project “Kviečiu šokti. Pažadinta aistra” (Let’s dance. Passion awakened).

Months of killing rehearsals, sweat, tears, emotions and dedication… In the end it turned out that it was worth it! 177 736 viewers voted for Katarzyna and Dainius.

Jurors gave the biggest amount of roses to Katarzyna and Dainius. The flowers replaced jury’s votes. Additional points were given via the Internet by the readers of zmones.lt. The audience in the studio gave the winners a standing ovation.

Katarzyna Niemyćko and Dainius Dimša, in accordance with the rules, presented two dances in the Grand Final on Sunday evening. Each pair could choose the best dance of all their previous performances and prepare a new one. Katarzyna and Dainius prepared tango and rumba. The jury was delighted with both their performances. The audience became euphoric.

Katarzyna and Dainius competed with four other pairs in the Grand Final: Kristina Navickaitė (Tina) and Tadas Rimgaila, Aušra Štukytė and Tomas Slausgalvis, Donatas Baumila and Rasa Židonytė, Ingrida Kazlauskaitė and Ovidijus Andriekus.

Katarzyna and her dance partner were the only pair in the Grand Final which has performed for 19 weeks. Other pairs had to resign or joined the project after some time. Niemyćko i Dimša have been undisputed favourites of the dance contest. However, there was a fierce competition till the very end. Tina and Tadas Rimgaila – their main competitors – could not hide their disappointment. They even did not congratulated the winners.

Katarzyna and Dainius won the first prize – 25 000 litas. He put golden court shoes, prepared by the organizers, on her feet. It means that Katarzyna is the queen of dance in Lithuania.

The interview with Katarzyna Niemyćko and more information about the Grand Final will be published in “Wilnoteka”.
