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.

Join us for our midweek dance relaxation with some social fusion dancing. Our summer location rotates between the Kroon Hall Quad and the Broadway Patio so check Facebook for the most up to date info. With different DJs each week, you'll get to dance to a variety of music!
Fuseday is free and open to all levels of dancers. Fuseday seeks to be an inclusive space for all.
The highlight of our week and of yours. Join us for DJed social dancing with wonderful company in a relaxing atmosphere! No experience, no partner necessary—a smile will suffice. Swing from 7:30 to 9, and then blues/fusion from 9 to 10:30.
For an hour before Fuseday, come learn Afrobeat from our very own Khader and Fifi, a renowed dancer with a background in West African dance, hip hop, modern, and ballet who professionally choreographs and performs! Her work has spanned TV/music video gigs on Saturday Night Live with Childish Gambino to a commercial with Bella Hadid (@joliediamondd to see latest clips)!
Don't miss out on this AMAZING opportunity! Afrobeat dance features moves that derive meaning from African culture and is a huge melting pot of different styles in of itself. Khader and Fifi will be teaching moves such as Azonto, Coupe Decale, Gweta, and more!
