Swing Paradise is organised by hoppers’ dance studio 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!?
