As the home of the French Cancan, the Moulin Rouge is a dreamland for many dancers. This weekend the world-renowned Moulin Rouge Dancers had the honor of representing France at the National Golf Guyancourt and dancing in their traditional costumes with the colors of the national flag in celebration of the Ryder Cup on Saturday, September 29th.

The famous and highly followed golf competition is being held for the first time in France this weekend. For a special event, brilliant presence! The Moulin Rouge dancers performed their crazy and impressive French Cancan, a high-energy dance that became popular in the 1840s, and continuing in popularity in French cabaret to this day.

It was a great way to encourage both the European team players and the United States team for this 42nd edition of the Ryder Cup, with a chic, prestigious and glamorous event that is highly expected all over the world.
