Can-can dancers of the Moulin Rouge in Paris, probably taken in the 1950s based on their hair and make-up styles. They were all so bendy in the backstage photos showing them warming up before a performance! The flying leaps into the splits look really painful! The French Cancan symbolize women’s liberty and emancipation, earning fame within the Moulin Rouge’s walls.
As of today, the Moulin Rouge and its dancers continue to delight visitors in amazing dinner shows, where they can admire the cancan dancers’ feathered and rhinestoned costumes.
