Rhythmic Blue (RB) is Yale University’s first and only hip-hop and contemporary dance group. We were founded in 1991 and have had a steady following ever since, selling out most of our shows on campus. Though we focus primarily on hip-hop, we love to branch out, and we have experimented with a vast array of styles. Modern; tap; street jazz; k-pop; contemporary African – you name it, we’ve tried it. We welcome dancers with varied backgrounds in dance, as we love fusing unexpected dance styles into our own. As a mixed gender, multicultural group, we value originality, diversity and creativity in our dances. RB holds two large shows per year, one at the end of each semester, to show off our newest choreography. RB also performs at various events throughout the semester, including charity events and the infamous Harvard-Yale showdown. Above all, we pride ourselves on our diversity – our members range from first years to PhD candidates and even to Yale University employees – and how closely knit we are as a family; held together by a simple yet profound love for what we do.
