WHY SWING PARADISE?

It's hot, it's sweaty, it's tiring, it's best memories

Swing Paradise is organised by What a Jazz dance studio, by dancers and teachers who are Vilnius Swing Dance Scene leaders with many years experience organising local & international events.

Expect top-notch organisation. We try hard to create an ultimate swing experience: dance classes with true to the core swing dancers-teachers, authentic swinging music of 1930s-1940s with original and modern touch, beautiful Vilnius old town and venues at your best walking distance, spectacular on-time evening program with plenty of time to social dance.

Even though we focus on unpopular swing dances as Balboa & Shag, we invite all swing dances to one dance floor. Swing Paradise festival vision is a full swing music and dance experience – expect a very wide range of tempo in the music, some waltzes and ballads, orchestral arrangements, even some time to sit down and enjoy the concert*.

*We mean, enjoy the moment.

Swing Paradise is held in the beautiful and romantic capital of Lithuania – Vilnius, which is a sweet hot spot in the world swing dance map. It’s a weekend affair to ignite passion for Balboa & Shag in your swinging soul with a pulse of the great African-American swinging jazz music from 1930’s and 40’s. Around 400 swinging souls every year create magic on the dance floor. And the BATTLE! WHAT A BATTLE!
Lithuanian Swing Dance scene has been bringing up new talents to the world for almost two decades. 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 into Balboa & Shag as we are, we invite you to the Swing Paradise.
Swing Paradise is a weekend dance workshop for experienced swing dancers focusing on Balboa, Collegiate Shag and St. Louis Shag. Well known international and local teachers, four nights of parties with groovy swinging bands and amazing dancers, held at beautiful venues at the heart of Vilnius downtown, competition and performances, some relaxed time and a lot of FUN – you’ll have it all.
