Entertainment Schedule

Featuring Entertainment by Madame Gigi's Outrageous French Cancan Dancers

      The Cancan’s history is surprisingly complex, and it’s evolution is unusual, changing over the years from it’s initial appearance as ballroom dance for couples in 1830 to a choreographed stage spectacle which really only became standardized in the 1920’s. The Cancan is regarded today primarily as a music hall dance, performed by a chorus line of female dancers who wear costumes with long skirts, petticoats, and black stockings, harking back to the fashions of the 1890’s

     To help facilitate The Festival of Nations featured country of France, Madame Gigi and company are returning for their second year and will be performing twice during the festival.(4:30 and 6:30)  During the rest of the day MGOFCD will be spending time with the festival participants, and maybe giving an impromptu dance lesson for those that may want to try out to be a cancan dancer!  For more information about Madame Gigi's Outrageous French Cancan Dancers click here!

**The full 2016 Entertainment Schedule will be updated and posted soon!!**
