The Moulin Rouge is one of those rare institutes that changed our culture. In times where women had to be drawn back, quiet and stay at home, the Moulin Rouge dancers were among the first to raise the flag (and the leg) of liberty – yes I can (can) do as I want and I am not ashame[d] of it! It is the oldest cabaret show in Paris, co-founded in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller and it is named after the famous red windmill on its rooftop. More than a century later, visitors can still come and see the classic cabaret act as it was showed during the “belle-epoque” times. The Moulin Rouge dancers are called “the Doriss girls” after Doris Haug, the legendary choreographer. Equipped With flamboyant costumes, flexibility, lithe and charm, the Doriss girls provide an unforgettable show.
