About

The Alliance for Dance at Yale College (ADAY) was established in 1998 by Sidra Bell ’01 and Elana Aquino ’00 to foster more appreciation for dance at Yale and to strengthen the connection between Yale and the New Haven community through dance.

ADAY acts as an umbrella organization for all the extracurricular dance groups at Yale College, coordinating their efforts and advocating for the campus dance community. As part of its community outreach efforts, ADAY runs the Yale-Coop Dance Collaborative, a Yale student-led workshop-based dance afterschool program at the nearby Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School.

Currently, ADAY includes more than 24 different dance groups!
