Cole Porter Swing Dance at the Quinnipiac Club

The Cole Porter Centennial at Yale wraps up with a party featuring New Haven’s favorite band – led by popular History Lecturer Jay Gitlin and vocalist Ginny Bales – as they recreate the glamour of a swanky Manhattan supper club with their authentic renditions of hot jazz of the 1920s and 1930s and big band swing from the 1940s.  Dance, eat, drink, and listen to the timeless music of Cole Porter (and his peers) at the historic Quinnipiac Club. Begin your beguine and brush up your fox trot and lindy-hop – or, stand back and watch the fancy footwork of the Yale Swing & Blues dancers.

Admission is $50 for alumni and guests from before the Class of 2004, $25 for alumni and guests from the Classes of 2004 – 2013, and $15 for current Yale students with current ID.  Your registration entitles you to an evening of enchanting music; a buffet of elegant hors d’oeuvres; and two vintage cocktails or glasses of wine—cash  bar also available for the extra thirsty and soft drinks are available for guests under 21. Period dress encouraged!  Sophisticated attire strongly encouraged! Witty repartee essential!

8:00 PM - 11:00 PM The Quinnipiac Club, 221 Church Street
