In the 19th century, when specific rules of conduct dictated the behavior of young women, most fell into line willingly. For the famed Can Can dancers, the line formed in quite a different place. With skirts flying way above their knees, these rebellious women kicked and hollered their way to notoriety. By 1830 the dance was outlawed as immoral and indecent. Though conventions have certainly changed since then, these modern day Can Can girls are no less rebellious. Their sexy, vibrant, exuberant presentation of this infamous dance will have you shrieking along. Don't hold back! Participation is always appreciated.
