Moulin Rouge and Can-can dance
The Moulin Rouge is renowned for being the spiritual birth place of a dance called the can-can and its more modern form. This dance was originally a seductive form of dance that was introduced by courtesans operating from their site, and slowly changed into its own type of entertainment leading to the start of cabarets all across Europe. Today, tourists flock to the Moulin Rouge to enjoy the music and dancing entertainment. The décor of the club still depicts the romantic turn of the century France.
When the Moulin Rouge first started in 1889, courtesans adapted the dance so as to entertain male clientele. The can-can before this was originally a respectable party dance for the working class. The adapted dance would be performed individually by the courtesans who would move in a provocative and energetic way in hopes to seduce a potential client or two. The courtesans would usually lift their skirt and show their legs and also underwear, and on occasion their genitals as well. As time moved on these can-can dances became overtly erotic and increasingly vulgar. This caused a lot of public outrage.
The modern can can
Later on, the Moulin Rouge did not need the courtesans any more as entertainment at music halls throughout Europe was gaining in popularity. The Moulin Rouge subsequently became a lawful club. The modern day can-can was then born as the dancers were introduced so as to entertain guests. The dance has since become renowned for the acrobatic and athletic tricks.
The can-can can be recognized by long skirts that have heavily frilled under garments which a dancer will wear to highlight her dancing skills. These include high kicks, cartwheels, splits plus various acrobatic tricks which are usually accompanied by shrieks and squeals. Even though the dance did become less crude, the dancing still tends to be somewhat provocative and a bit risqué.
