Champion dancers Robertas Maleckis and Inga Sirkaite are owners of ELITE BALLROOM. Both were born in Kaunas, Lithuania and started dancing at the age of seven at the local school in their home town. They have known each other since their early days of competitions and have been dancing together for 17 years.
Although they had good teachers in Lithuania, Robertas and Inga wanted to expand their horizons, so in 1995 they began to travel and seek training from some of the world’s best teachers in London, England. As a result, they became Lithuanian National Champions and achieved excellent results worldwide.
In 2001 Robertas and Inga turned professional and decided to put even more focus on their dancing, so they moved to London, where they spent almost two years. This helped them excel at their first competition as professionals and make it to the grand finals in the Rising Star Professional Latin Division at the most prestigious competition in the World: the BRITISH OPEN in Blackpool, England.
Robertas and Inga were the first professional couple in the history of Lithuania to achieve such a result in Latin dances.
Their dream was to own a dance studio and they could see it happening in the US. At the end of 2002 they moved to Durham, NC, and started as employees at a local studio. In 2005 they started to manage the DANCE PLUS studio.
In April 2009 Robertas and Inga opened their new state-of-the-art dance studio, ELITE BALLROOM, in an upscale neighborhood in Morrisville, NC.
Robertas and Inga are very happy here and have very good friendships and support from their students. They train adults, children, beginners, social and advanced dancers, as well as coach ballroom teams from Duke, UNC and NCSU universities.
