le cancan bijou
Le Cancan Bijou makes up an integral part of the Mad Sal's Dockside Alehouse Music Hall show that happens three times daily weekends from Thanksgiving through Christmas. In 2012, we joined the Opera Gala Festival on a second stage twice daily for the full run of the event. Le Cancan Bijou often takes part in improv performance throughout the fair, and many dancers also pose for Dark Garden Unique Corsetry's model windows over the course of the run.

Le Cancan Bijou takes part in several shows that take place at the Eagle Theatre during the Time Traveler weekends, which happen during the summer months leading up to Labor Day. We also perform and take photographs with visitors outside in the streets of Old Sacramento. We are excited to take part in this Old West-themed event.

Le Cancan Bijou performed to new music by Abney Park, as well as our signature version of Cotton-Eyed Joe, choreographed by the lovely and talented Heather Feeney.
Le Cancan Bijou wowed the audience for St. Ignacius College Preparatory's annual Fathers' Club Fundraiser, dancing on a stage with a scale replica of the base of la Tour Eiffel that went all the way up to the ceiling of the ballroom. Bijou also mixed and mingled, and posed for photos with attendees in the Moulin Rouge bar they'd constructed in the next ballroom. C'est magnifique!
