Can-can (sometimes non-hyphenated as in the original French: cancan French pronunciation: [kɑ̃kɑ̃]) is a high-energy and physically demanding music hall dance, traditionally performed by a chorus line of female dancers who wear costumes with long skirts, petticoats, and black stockings. The main features of the dance are the lifting and manipulation of the skirts, withhigh kicking and suggestive, provocative body movements. The Infernal Galop from Jacques Offenbach‘s Orpheus in the Underworld is the tune most associated with the can-can. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Can-can
