Yale Danceworks

Welcome to Danceworks!

Founded in 1984, we’re both the second-oldest dance group and the largest non-audition dance group at Yale!

We’re all about keeping it fierce, classy, and LOUD! Our shows are full of positive energy, and you will immediately feel like part of a huge family when you dance with us.

We’re a multi-style, multi-level dance group with over 250 different members! We showcase pieces from a smattering of genres, from Broadway and Contemporary to Hip-Hop and K-POP.

We’re full of incredibly talented and hardworking dancers, some of whom have been dancing their entire lives, right alongside other performers who’ve never danced before. Danceworks is a space where you can grow as a dancer, a performer, and as a person, and express yourself and your identity through movement!

Our dancers keep coming back to Danceworks because of the empowering and supportive community we’ve built through the years. We perform twice per academic year—once in the fall semester, and once in the spring! If you’d like to dance or choreograph with us (any Yale-affiliates are welcome, including graduate students and even faculty), follow us on Instagram @yaledanceworks, and look out for our information sessions at the beginning of each semester!
