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.
Monthly Dance this Saturday, June 24 (West Coast and More Fusion!)
We're having our first of two monthly dances this Saturday, June 24! There will be a beginner lesson at 8PM and the music and dancing starts and 9PM and goes 'til we drop (mostly). Local DJ (and west coast swing instructor) Meg Sullivan will be starting us off for this west-coast themed evening and that'll be followed up by DJs Emilio Salazar and Nell McGloin-King into late in the night! Come fusion dance (west coast or any other form!) for one, two, or all three sets, and if you want to get in for free, don't forget to sign up and volunteer here!
And looking ahead, don't forget to sign up for our Beginner Blues Lesson Series starting in early July. Four 1.5 hour classes will get you ready to groove to the blues music at our practica, at home, or at whatever other venue you find! Register here!
As always, check our Facebook page for the most up to date info (no account needed!)!
Dance with you soon!
