Alex Hanning whips Suzanne Miller round Red Square as part of a University of Washington tradition that never fails to bring a smile to passers-by. They are part of the Swing Kids, who have been dancing the Charleston, Lindy Hop and other East Coast swing steps at Red Square for the past 12 years. The group was started by UW alum Chris Chapman, who went on to found HepCat Productions, a Seattle dance studio, where Chapman continues to teach. The UW Swing Kids practice their moves every Friday, rain or shine. They also host weekly lessons and gather for a formal dance every quarter.
