About Cuppa Swing:

Updated: June 19, 2010

Cuppa Swing was founded in June of 2010 by Alex Zorach, D'Arcy Jeffery, and others, who were living in or near Newark, Delaware during the summer and wanted to dance locally year-round, not just when the University of Delaware is in session. Cuppa Swing is named for the location of its dances--in a coffee shop that serves delicious coffee, tea, and other drinks.


We would like to thank the owners and employees of the Newark, DE branch of Saxby's Coffee for generously offering to host our dance free of charge, and for keeping the shop open after its normal hours. We would also like to thank the University of Delaware's Swing Club for letting us use their sound equipment, and thank Stuart Collins for his guidance in organizing the dance.
