Can-Can, or French Can-Can, (written also Cancan) is a type of dance of French origin who acquired popularity within the cabaret at the time of the Belle Epoque. The composer Jacques Offenbach wrote the famous can-can for operettas, the most famous of which is the Galop infernal, operetta Orpheus in hell of 1858. The dance was characterized by the performance of dancers who, lined up in a row one o’clock side by side, at the time of a very fast music and rhythmic rhythmically raised legs: during this movement they partially discovered, emerging from the long, full skirts and petticoats in use at the time, arousing the enthusiasm of the spectators, who often they accompanied the rhythm of clapping. Perfect for projects involving France, la belle Epoque, Paris and images of Can Can dancers. For a more versartile use I included in the zip, in addition to the main version, a short version and a very short: Can Can (main version): (02:10) Can Can (short version): (01:19) Can Can (very short version): (0:54)
