Swing Paradise is organised by What a Jazz teachers, who are passionate dancers and Vilnius Swing Dance Scene leaders.
Vilnius, the biggest small town that I've visited. It lies in the midst of a contradiction of a previously jazz culture wasteland that has inexplicably become a breeding ground for world class lindy hoppers who have successfully embraced jazz culture without losing their Lithuanian identity. Many a night I've found myself drunkenly strolling along Gedimino street with the white Cathedral of Vilnius gleaming down up me and all I can think is...What the Fuck!?
