The “Moulin Rouge” is a famous nightclub with a cabaret (or dance show). The name “Moulin Rouge” means “Red Windmill”. In the late 1800s there was a real windmill where the nightclub stands near Montmartre in Paris.
The original house, which burned down in 1915, was co-founded in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia.
Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today, the Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. The club’s decor still contains much of the romance of fin de siècle France.
My very abstract version of the dance at the Moulin Rouge.
