Housing out-of-town dancers for an exchange is a beautiful tradition. In New Haven, we host dancers for our exchange and other events, and when we travel to dance in other cities, these and other dancers open their homes to us! This is key to a great exchange.
In opening up their home, a host may develop closer friendships with their guests, and know that they’re also making the exchange affordable, accessible, and much more fun. Guests receive a personal welcome to New Haven and get to spend even more time with our lovely local dancers.
---I’m considering hosting. What does it entail?---Hosts are expected to provide a clean, safe space for their guest(s) to sleep and use the bathroom from arrival Friday through departure Sunday or Monday. Hosts are not required to provide food or transportation (though if you want and are able to, your guests would surely appreciate it). The housing coordinator will try to match night owls with night owls, but please try to be accommodating.
DISCLAIMER:The Housing Exchange acts only as a clearinghouse for the convenience of dancers. Neither Yale University nor Yale Swing, Blues, and Fusion screens dancers or hosts; Yale University and the Yale Swing, Blues, and Fusion make no representations with respect to the dancers or the hosts and decisions regarding housing are to be made solely between the dancers and the hosts. The dancers and the hosts acknowledge that Yale University and Yale Swing, Blues, and Fusion are not responsible for, and will be held harmless against, any injury, loss, or other damage arising from or related in any manner to the housing exchange.
