  The Can Can Brasserie - History of the CanCan
Though cancan began as a dance for couples in 1830 at the working class dancing gardens, it reached its zenith in the early 1900s in Paris.
It was with its adaptation from the dance gardens to the professional stages of the Moulin Rouge that the cancan became an aphrodisiac, with its new aspect of flaunting legs and underwear in an erotic manner.
Though cancan came to be regarded as the epitome of french naughtiness and was continually criticized by moralists as lewd exhibitionism and exploitive, the dance inspired many artists and became the focus of works from Seurat to Picasso, and continues to be reveled today by classical ballet troupes and lavish theatres.

 Can-can - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The cancan was, therefore, originally a dance for couples, who indulged in high kicks and other gestures with arms and legs.
These individuals developed the various cancan moves that were later incorporated by the choreographer Pierre Sandrini in the spectacular "French Cancan", which he devised at the Moulin Rouge in the 1920s and presented at his own Bal Tabarin from 1928.
In Britain, the USA and elsewhere, the cancan achieved popularity in music halls, where it was danced by groups of women in choreographed routines.

 Can can
The cancan developed from the galop, a popular dance in the public dancing gardens and dance-halls of Paris in the early part of the nineteenth century.
When it first appeared in 1830, the cancan was really an exaggerated form of the galop, with high kicks and other gestures with arms and legs, mostly initially performed by men, and later also by their female partners.
The cancan's history is surprisingly complex, and its evolution is unusual, in so far as it actually did evolve, changing gradually over the years from its initial appearance as ballroom dance for couples in 1830 to a choreographed stage spectacle which really only became "standardized" in the 1920s.

There, he conceives the idea of reviving the cancan as the feature of a new, more popular establishment...and meets Nini, a laundress and natural dancer, whom he hopes to star in his new show.
The final cancan sequence is an explosion of color and movement, as all of Danglard's machinations come to flower; it's been known to leave revival-house audiences teary-eyed with pleasure.
FRENCH CANCAN is a wonderful example of the kind of farcical frivolity that characterizes Renoir's work in the 50s.

 French Cancan - Movie Review
The 19th-century Paris of Jean Renoir’s remarkable 1955 film French Cancan is a distillation of the Paris that exists within the genre of the screen musical.
Renoir suggests that, for those compelled to entertain, the distinction is hopelessly blurred; his Nini, whose story the film most closely follows, finds in the film’s finale that the stage is the only place in which she truly lives.
The film’s finale, in which the Moulin Rouge opens triumphantly with the much-anticipated cancan, is the sort of screen marvel of which no director today is capable: it’s frantic yet deftly controlled, personal yet grandly conceived, and it leaves you elated.
