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 fourth edition of Vilnius Balboa & Shag Rebirth was already legendary. More than 400 swinging souls created 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 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 into Balboa & Shag as we are, we invite you to the Swing Paradise.
Swing Paradise is a weekend dance workshop for experienced swing dancers. Well known international and local teachers, four 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.
