Learn more about the background of the Can Can

The Can Can is a playful, physically demanding and very tiring dance. Considered an erotic dance style with erotic connotations, the dance first appeared in the early 19th century. It was considered quite scandalous and any young people who indulged themselves in performing it were frowned upon and considered to be of loose moral fibre. Although the dance was thought to be extremely inappropriate by 'respectable' society it soon began emerging from the working-class dance halls into the mainstream. The Can Can was viewed as extremely erotic because of the contrasting black stockings and the way in which the dancers made use of the extravagant underwear of the period. A Can Can dancer would sometimes stand very close to a man and encourage him to bet that she could take off his hat without using her hands. Once the bet was accepted, she'd release a high kick that would quickly knock his hat straight off his head and, at the same time, give him a cheeky, quick look at her underwear. It was also a strong reminder that anyone taking unwanted liberties with a dancer could expect a kick in the face! Can Can dancers were very suggestive dancers as they would lift and manipulate their skirts, bending over and throwing the skirts over their backs, thereby presenting their bottoms to the audience - Can Can dancers were considered cheeky and provocative and the Moulin Rouge dancer ‘La Goulue’ was renowned for her interpretation of this part of the act.

An interesting fact about the Can Can: it is a myth that the Can Can was ever frequently performed without the dancers wearing underwear.
