French Fling cancan – “a high-kicking Parisian cancan spectacle”
This raucous performance from our dedicated cancan troupe French Fling is a jaw dropping eight minutes of cancan splendour! High-kicking exuberance and athletic grace is captured in the French cancan, one of the most famous dances of all.
The troupe, comprised of professional dancers and gymnastic specialists, celebrates the traditional French cancan with all the well-known spécialités such as the high-kicking battement, the grand écart (jump splits) and more, to provide a show-stopping spectacle guaranteed to whip the audience into a frenzy.
From the music halls of Paris, the cancan is a time-honoured favourite that adds that extra spark to any event. ‘Cancan’, which can translate as ‘scandal’, originally a partner dance, has developed over time to produce the perfect heady mix of high kicks, gymnastic moves and bawdy humour. It expounds with energy and elegance. The cancan is not simply a dance routine; it is an exercise in spectacle and excitement!
We have built on this iconic dance and its traditional bawdy nature to create an explosive performance. Combining attitude, style, athleticism and grace, the costumes, dancing and energy merge to form the perfect cancan.
