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.

Hey all!

After a dance filled weekend with Ruth Evelyn teaching workshops, I want to bring your attention to the bootcamp we'll be holding in three weekends! This is a great opportunity to learn the basics of blues and swing, so you can feel comfortable leading or following on our weekly dance floor. So if you or someone you know wants to dance but hasn't felt prepared, come on out to two lesson-filled days and get grooving! Look below for more info, and go to the registration tab of our website to sign up! As always, check our Facebook page for the most up to date info (no account needed!)

Dance with you soon!
