The Cancan Collective are 'real women' of all ages, shapes and abilities, students and teachers dancing together for fun and of course entertainment.
Created by Artistic Director & Choreographer Sam Hough in 2011 designed to bring the lost Art of the Cancan to the modern day. With choreographies that are always well received by both dancers and audiences The Cancan Collective are praised for their mix of new and old. By Creating routines filled with personality each dancer gets to add their own little bit of magic which when put together creates something fabulous! We always leave our audiences crying 'more...more!'
Our Cancan is a blend of burlesque Cabaret (cheeky but no stripping) with the traditional cancan moves. We have whoops and spins, oodles of skirt swooshing and legs a plenty and of course the cancan would not be the cancan without a bit of bloomer 'flashing'!!!
Because We Cancan!
This workshop is all about bringing the lost art of the Can-Can kicking and screaming to modern day. With a splash of cabaret and a sprinkle of Burlesque, this high-energy workshop with Kicks a-plenty will be filled with fun. Guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face!
Split into two sections, the first half is a short sassy cabaret routine to wake your mind and warm up the body. You will then learn one of our energetic choreographies full of skirt swooshing action and plenty of Oh La la!
This workshop is an open Level and open to all dancers, no high kicks, splits, or cartwheels required.
Bring along a full skirt, wear leggings or trousers and bring along a water bottle.
