Can-Can Dance

Why not take a break and enjoy the high-energy exuberance of the can-can dance? 
It's been popular for nearly 180 years now.



The music used for this can-can is Jacques Offenbach's Galop Infernal 
from Orpheus in the Underworld. This music is the 
go-to choice whenever the can-can is done.

The costumes are part of the spectacle. 
Can you imagine a can-can in which 
the dancers are wearing yoga clothes?

At my age, dancing the can-can is a can't-can't. But it's fun to watch.

We all thought the song was called "The Can Can Song" Thanks again Angel!

A group did a version at a mall. They were nowhere as skilled as the first set.

I read up on it: men used to do the cancan as well. I can't figure it's as spectacular as the show we saw here. Remember the movie with Shirley MacLaine and Frank Sinatra? I guess that was the film debut of Juliet Prowse and her almost 40-in legs...

The first set of dancers was the best!
