Moulin Rouge Makayla Boxley (Romane) Moulin Rouge was a place where people would go to see dance performances. But before it became Moulin Rouge it was the old, run down White Queen Dance Hall. In 1889 Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler bought the old hall and transformed it into the Moulin Rouge. It’s name means “Red Windmill” which refers to the red windmill at Moulin Rouge. Now the Moulin Rouge is a modern­day cabaret.

Moulin Rouge is now famous because the iconic “can­can” dance was first performed there. The Moulin Rouge was later nicknamed “Le Premier Palais des Femmes” which means The First Palace of Women in french. There was even a movie made about the Moulin Rouge!
