#About the Club Moulin Rouge

Beside one of Montmartre's wind stations, lies a club with a red windmill emblem. Moulin Rouge has been one of the most important attractions in Paris for many years. This place quickly became known and very important people came to it. The Moulin Rouge is located in the 18th district of Paris and offer circus shows with animals, snakes, dogs and of course impressive and fascinating dances. In this place you can also eat dinner and drink champagne.

The Moulin Rouge was built by two activists who wanted to characterize the place for the upper class population so they could reach the fashionable district in 1889. The place was bold and sexual, offering champagne, food and provocative dancing. This was probably a winning recipe because the place almost immediately became a huge success. Over the years, the Moulin Rouge not only attracted the upper class, but also businessmen, artists, working class, foreigners and impressive women. Everyone came here to see and be seen.

At the time the club was opening, Paris was under the impulse of renewal, change, industrial and social progress, and its opening was a record for it's time.

The outdoor scenery, the famous windmill, has become the inspiration and theme for many painter's creations, pictures and posters, which are popular to this day. The Moulin Rouge became the symbol of Parisian bohemianism.

Before entering the club we would recommend you take a walk around the area, the streets are beautiful and the atmosphere is magical.



#The Can Can Dance

The Moulin Rouge is also known as the birthplace of the Can Can Dance. This is a difficult and demanding dance, originating in France in the early 19th century. It is performed by a number of female dancers who dance next to each other in a line, dressed in long stockings, and skirts with many layers. From time to time, the dancers will lift their skirts in a provocative way, so that part of their leg is exposed. Due to this act, the dance was considered obscene and immoral and was given the name of a prostitute dance.

In the beginning, the Can Can dance was a done in pairs of men and women, however it gradually became a show dance performed to an audience - just like a performance in night clubs and brothels. Over the years, the dancers added elements of acrobatics, shouts and gestures, such as lifting the skirt up to the top of the head, kicks, jumps, and more.

The dance gained a lot of popularity and later gave birth to the cabaret.
