Yale Swing, Blues, and Fusion is the non-competitive swing and blues dancing community on campus. We provide a space for people to get together and dance in a fun, informal setting.

Our regular events include monthly swing dances, weekly swing, blues, and fusion practica on Sundays, weekly fusion practica on Tuesdays, and trips to local dancing events. We offer Lindy Hop and Blues lessons every semester, for a nominal fee, and invite guest instructors for dance workshops at various points throughout the year.

Our events are open to everyone – undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff, and members of the broader New Haven community.

Registration Open for Beginner West Coast Swing Lesson Series

Hey all!

Great to see everyone out at practicum this week as we farewell jammed some community members who are moving away from New Haven. We hope to dance with them again next time they swing by New Haven!

In the meantime, running on Mondays from June to early July, you can get five beginner lessons in West Coast Swing Dancing to get you rocking on the dance floor (including an end-of-June west coast fusion dance). Look below for more information, or register here. As always, check our Facebook page for the most up to date info (no account needed!)

Dance with you soon!
