Head to Paris’ historic and lively Latin quarter for your evening Cancan dance class at the Paradis Latin, a famous Parisian cabaret theater built by Gustave Eiffel. A unique experience that’s only available with this exclusive tour, this 2-hour workshop immerses you in France’s Belle Époque, when the Cancan was at its height as one of the most iconic forms of dance and entertainment in the world.
After being greeted by a team of professional dance performers, it's time to get ready for your on-stage ‘debut.’ You’ll be fitted in traditional Cancan skirts and sent to hair and makeup to get you dolled up and looking like a true Cancan performer.
You’ll blend right in as you take to the stage of the theater and learn the basics of the Cancan dance from your instructor. The dance is animated by a troupe of Cancaneuses and Cancaneurs (who actually perform at the cabaret each night) so you can gain tips, techniques and inspiration from the pros as you master the moves.
Once you’ve acquired the expertise of the Cancan (or nearly, at least), disrobe and let your hosts escort you to the theater bar, the Bar des Anges, for a relaxing drink. You’ll be served an original ‘French Cancan’ cocktail, specially created by the Paradis Latin for its workshop guests. This deliciously sassy drink is made with raspberries, Champagne and 3 drops of absinthe. Santé!
As your workshop comes to a close, you’ll be presented with a diploma and a souvenir photo to remember this one-of-a-kind Paris experience forever. Enhance your experience by purchasing your own tickets for the Cancan show later that night!
