YS&B is a community of dancers, organizers, teachers, and volunteers who get together to dance Lindy Hop, 6-count (East Coast), Charleston, Balboa, and the blues.

We welcome everyone who happens to be in New Haven for any period of time to come discover our community! We have the official support of Yale University, with use of beautiful facilities, but we include many dancers who are not otherwise affiliated with the university (in addition to those of us who are undergrads, grad students, post-docs, staff, and even faculty).

We are proud to be a gender-neutral dance community. Our classes treat men and women as equals and quicken the learning process by teaching everyone to lead and follow partnered movement. Everyone dances with everyone in our classes and at our dances, regardless of experience or ability, age, gender presentation, sexual orientation, race, religion, or any other aspect of identity.

Come join us. No partner, experience, or special shoes are required. And also invite us to join you--we are happy to bring music and instructors to your venue or community group to share our love of dancing. Just ask!
