Wondering to visit Vilnius?
You are here probably because you’ve heard some great legends about Vilnius’ Swing Dance Scene.
Well here is a great reason for you to come here – Vilnius Balboa and Shag Rebirth 2018, April 19-22nd.
We like to call it – SWING PARADISE.

Swing Paradise is held in the beautiful and romantic capital of Lithuania – Vilnius, which also is a sweet hot spot in the world swing dance map. The first edition of Vilnius Balboa & Shag Rebirth was inspirational and had more than 200 dancing souls ignited with passion and joy for Swing. This time we expect to be bigger and even more special.

Lithuanian Swing Dance scene has been bringing up new talents to the world for more than a decade already. Unfortunately, there are too few big events here to show the world how amazing and intense this small scene really is. On the other hand, that’s what makes it a true hidden gem, an unspoiled paradise – you don’t go there often, but when you do, you can’t forget it and you’re never the same afterwards. If you’re as into Balboa & Shag as we are, we invite you to the Swing Paradise.

Swing Paradise is a weekend Balboa & Shag workshop for both, beginners and experienced dancers. Well known international and local teachers, three nights of parties with hard swinging bands and amazing dancers, held at beautiful venues at the heart of downtown Vilnius, competitions and performances, some relaxed time and a lot of FUN – you’ll have it all.
