  • “Clandestine” and social dance in La Laguna

    The two activities organized by Paradise Swing Canarias – official partner of the 7i Swing Festival – yesterday on Sunday 12 March were a big success. The “clandestine” street dance which took place on the Plaza Doctor Olivera in La Laguna was another opportunity to surprise passers-by and get them into the mood with music and dance. In the evening, the social dance at La Fábrica Motorcycle Pub enjoyed an excellent atmosphere and the participation of many dancers and onlookers; a soiree which went on longer than originally planned, which says a lot for the success of the meeting.

  • “Clandestine” at carnival

    The swing community joined in with the carnival festivities in Tenerife’s capital for the competition and exhibition of vintage cars which took place on Piñata Sunday, in the García Sanabria Park on the Avenida de Anaga in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, as is the tradition. The dance and participation of the members of Paradise Swing Canarias,  dressed in vintage-style clothing,  were the perfect marriage at a “clandestine” street dance which helped take a further step to promote swing dancing and – if you’ll excuse the pun – to get the engines warmed up ready for our festival.

    On behalf of the organization we would like to thank the Club Automóviles Antiguos de Tenerife for their enthusiasm and selfless cooperation. The club showed their enthusiasm for the idea of sharing the space and experience throughout the day.
