Eglė Nemickaitė

Egle Nemickaite is a swing dancer from Vilnius, Lithuania where she is dancing, performing, teaching and inspiring the community at What a Jazz dance studio everyday. Dance followed Egle through all her life, but she found the real passion for Lindy Hop and later on for Collegiate Shag too.

Dance has always felt like a big liberation for Egle. Liberation from routines, thoughts, work, limits. Dancing makes her feel true to herself, music and partner. It gives her the power of total freedom and also a peace to the mind, body and heart. Her rich teaching experience is being increasingly appreciated at the international workshops as well. She shares her enormous passion towards a dance with great joy and commitment.
