LOCATION
Eight locations along Broadway, Seattle, Washington

 


Eight sets of inlaid bronze shoe-prints (cast by Chuck Greening) can be found in the sidewalks of vibrant Broadway, the thoroughfare running through the heart of Capitol Hill. Each set covers approximately twelve square feet and is arranged to show the pattern of a dancing couple’s feet. Arrows and the letters “R” and “L” (for right and left) indicate the correct direction of the steps comprising well-known dances like the tango, waltz, lind-y, foxtrot weave, rumba and mambo as well as two dances created by the artist entitled “bus-stop” and “o-bee-bo.”
