What do you do with Fred Astaire's dancing shoes ?

Michael Feinstein collects memorabilia connected to U.S. popular music and over the years have collected quite a few items including Fred Astaire’s dancing shoes, a signed copy of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” and Frank Sinatra’s cufflinks. Now the collection is housed in the $160 million Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana. The facility will serve as the headquarters of the Michael Feinstein Foundation. He started the organization in 2007 to educate students about the Great American Songbook.
