The Moulin Rouge opened in the Jardin de Paris at the foot of the Montmartre hill as a dance hall in 1889 and presented a cabaret show which included the first cancan, an energetic and physically demanding dance with taps high feet.
The facade of the building was decorated with flickering electric lights, which was a novelty at the time, with a huge red windmill at the very front of the building.
The ballroom was damaged by fire in 1915, but has been restored and is still a performance hall today.
Ella Fitzgerald, Elton John, Frank Sinatra and Liza Minnelli have all performed on stage at the Moulin Rouge in Paris.
Today, the Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction that offers musical dance performances to visitors from all over the world.
