He made his first finals in the European and World Amateur Championships when he was only 19 years old.

Arunas & Katusha

Arunas & Katusha started dancing together in 2007 and have become an unstoppable force. After only one month dancing together, Katusha and Arunas swept the Ohio Star Ball Championships. Two months later, they participated in the United Kingdom Open Championships, where they were placed second among all the best dancers in the world. An unbelievable result surprised many people, including Arunas and Katusha. In 2008 they got elevated to the top of Professional Ballroom Dancing World by placing second in major competitions. Arunas & Katusha won their first World Championships title in September 2009, after dancing together for less than two years! They were thrilled to reach this pinnacle of competitive dancing. However, at the same time, they felt that they still had a lot to offer, and they continued working on improving their dancing so that their performances could bring even more joy and excitement to the audience. Arunas and Katusha are also reigning International, UK, and British Professional Ballroom Champions.
