Cha Cha Cha at the Moulin Rouge in Paris – by John Keating

The Moulin Rouge show in Paris.

"I danced Cha Cha Cha at the Moulin Rouge"


DK Dancer John Keating describes a time when he did the Cha Cha Cha at the Moulin Rouge!

"One of my favorite stories was when I was in Paris with my partner at the time.

We were on a bus tour and the Director asked us if we wanted to go to a show at Moulin Rouge as it wasn’t on the schedule.

He received enough interest to book us in.

We had great seats and enjoying a great dinner and French wine while we waited for the show to begin.

My partner was also a Ballroom dancer.

There was an empty dance floor in front of us and they started playing Michael Buble’s “Sway”.

Well as a fellow dancer you know you cannot sit down to that tune.

So my partner and I stepped onto that empty dance floor in front of 800 people and did a Cha Cha Cha.

As we left the floor people were clapping and patting us on the shoulder.

My Philosophy is :- Never miss an opportunity to show your stuff and dance like no one was watching.


I will never forget the feeling."
