SF Salon Music Presents Heels

April 30 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Walk and Dance in Your Own Shoes

They say that to know a person’s journey, you need to walk a mile in their shoes. At this salon, we’ll learn about the stories of several dancers through the history of their shoes – from bare feet to pointe slippers to tango heels!

The program will start with a talk about the symbolism and feminism of shoes, why women wear heels, and how wearing heels changes and reflects the body – the look from outside the shoes and the feel from inside the shoes. Then, join us for riveting dance performances from a group of trained dancers representing many different styles. You’ll walk away inspired, and learn a bit more to tell your story with your own shoes.

As always with SF Salon Music, expect the unexpected! You’ll leave with new knowledge, new memories, and perhaps even a new connection. Join us on April 30 at the Verdi Club in San Francisco for this once-in-a-lifetime performance.

Verdi Club, 2424 Mariposa Street, San Francisco

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served at 4 PM, followed by the concert. Desserts are offered after the concert.
