Yale Offers Class on New York’s Nightlife

The class, ‘Dance Music and Nightlife Culture in New York City,’ seeks to answer the burning question: “Why do we go out at night?”

Class excursions include trips to New York’s hottest clubs and guest speakers like well-known DJ Simonez Wolf and Vibe magazine co-founder Scott Poulson-Bryant.
