Alliance for Dance at Yale
The Alliance for Dance at Yale College was established in 1998 by Sidra Bell ‘01 and Elana Aquino ‘00 to foster more appreciation for dance at Yale and to strengthen the connection between Yale and the New Haven community through dance. ADAY acts as an umbrella organization for all the extracurricular dance groups at Yale College, coordinating their efforts and advocating for the campus dance community.  As part of its community outreach efforts, ADAY runs the Yale-Coop Dance Collaborative, a Yale student-led workshop-based dance afterschool program at the nearby Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School. Currently, ADAY includes 22 different dance groups.

Legacy Theatre
The Legacy Theatre is a newly incorporated theatre company that envisions a theatre in the Shoreline area that will house a core Repertory Company committed to performing ongoing seasons of transformative theatre. Founded on the desire to showcase excellent-quality, professional theatre, not only in production value and artistic nuance, but also in thematic content and overall scope, the Legacy aims to put into practice the age-old but scarce Repertory Company. To that end, The Legacy Company is a core of professional actors who rotate among casts and directors to produce beautiful work in the community that hosts recognizable talent, switching amongst the great literature and musicals of our time. This environment sets the scene for a terrific training ground in the conservatory arm of The Legacy. The Artist Teachers from the resident company serve the theatre’s Conservatory as true apprentice theatres of old, passing on the legacy of the rich tradition of the Theatre to students of all ages.
