Some time ago, John sent the below picture of cancan dancers performing at the
Royal Gala Performance of "Moulin Rouge" in 2001.
 (From the October, 2001 issue of Hello magazine.) 

Note that there are rarely any LAYERS in classical, authentic cancan; rather,
the ruffles sewn to the inner side of the skirt serve as a "petticoat".

The 1960 movie CanCan also featured some interesting pictures of Juliete Prowse 'en cancan'

To us, this looks like a lady who decided to
perform an impromptu cancan at a party in the fifties!

The Finale of the
Golden Horseshoe Revue

With just four weeks notice, the Golden Horseshoe Revue in Frontierland officially closed on Sunday, October 12, 1986 with Dick Hardwick, Betty Taylor and Jay Meyer doing the final show. One of the dancers included Dick's wife, Claudia who had been with the show since 1971. The Golden Horseshoe Revue lasted over 50,000 plus shows, helping it to maintain the “Guinness Book of World Records” for the longest running stage show in history.

"This rather attractive picture comes from a surprising source -
a Quaker Journal."
