The Yale Ballroom Dance Club is a satellite of the team for non-competitive members. Club lessons focus on American (Smooth & Rhythm) and social dances. These lessons are designed for those who want to learn to dance at a casual but thorough pace, without the commitment and pressure of competitive ballroom dancing. You need not come with a partner, and no prior experience is required!
