Paris

Crazy Horse

The Crazy Horse is Paris' most daring and revolutionary cabaret, a temple of sensuality where dancers create an exclusive, chic and seductive show.

The Crazy Horse has become over time the most innovative and non-conformist cabaret in Paris, producing some of the best shows in the world for 65 years.

Born in 1951 from the creative genius of entrepreneur Alain Bernardin, the Crazy Horse’s irreverent stage has seen great artists such as Lova Moor, Pamela Anderson, Charles Aznavour and Dita Von Teese perform.

Considered by many to be the most avant-garde, exclusive, seductive and daring cabaret in the capital, the Crazy Horse is in effect the temple of femininity thanks to its sensual, sinuous and provocative girls.

The Crazy Horse dancers

Created in 1951 by the emblematic Alain Bernardin, this famous erotic cabaret has the particularity of dressing the dancers with light effects. Twelve sublime dancers with imaginative names are gradually revealed, catapulting them into a fascinating universe. With agility, flexibility and humour, with elegance, talent and impertinence, each dancer offers a particular vision of femininity.

On stage, from the heights of their towering heels, their long legs compel the audience to look up. Their famous, beautifully arched backs are known the world over. Everything revolves around colour: from scarlet red lips, to wigs in electric blue, passionate pink, platinum, vermilion. An aura of mystery surrounds the bodies with stage names: Hippy Bang Bang, Kika Revolver or Etta d’Amour. Little by little, the veil of mystery lifts and gives a glimpse of who these women are, sometimes sassy and bewitching, explosive or mysterious, but always wildly unique: the Crazy Girls.

The dancers had to meet the strict physical requirements laid down by Alain Bernardin, founder of Crazy Horse Paris and a great admirer of women and femininity, in order to respect the tradition and spirit of this legendary club. At one time, the criteria for becoming Crazy Girls were very strict: the main requirement was a height of between 1 metre 68 and 1 metre 72, to maintain visual harmony on stage and to respect a one-third to two-thirds ratio between leg length and bust.

Today, ballet studies and a training period of 3 to 5 months are also required, during which they will learn how to become real Crazy Girls and then go on to captivate audiences not only in the legendary Parisian cabaret, but also in theatres all over the world.

The show

For 65 years, the show Totally Crazy at the Crazy Horse has been a collection of iconic cabaret shows, reimagined in a glittering hymn to femininity, at this iconic Parisian venue just steps from the Champs-Elysées.

Immerse yourself in the crazy and sophisticated creative universe of the Crazy Horse: legendary choreographies and sensational special effects await you in a bewitching rhythmic show.

For 90 minutes, the legendary Crazy Girls will amaze you with a colourful and joyful performance, full of increasingly daring and brazen acts, resolutely modern and in the unmistakable style for which the legendary Parisian cabaret is renowned.

You can choose between two shows on weekdays, one during dinner time at 8.15pm and one in the late evening at 10.45pm, while at weekends there are three shows on the bill, at 7pm, 9.30pm and 11.45pm.

Tips for an evening at the Crazy Horse

Unlike the Moulin Rouge, seats are allocated in advance and there are never queues at the entrance. However, it is advisable to arrive 45 minutes before the start of the show, as the guest artists will welcome you with musical performances lasting 30 minutes before the curtain rises.

As in all cabarets in Paris, a dress code is required, i.e. rules for what to wear: an elegant outfit is appreciated and spectators are asked to avoid sportswear and trainers, flip-flops and shorts in summer. Instead, a tie and evening dress are not compulsory, but are nevertheless welcome.

The minimum age to attend the show is 10 years, if the child is accompanied by parents. Please note that the show includes nude scenes. To fully understand the type of show, we recommend watching the video trailer to make sure the show meets your standards.

Taking photos and videos during the show is strictly forbidden.

Crazy Horse tickets

We assume that admission to the Crazy Horse is not cheap. It does, however, offer multiple entry options, from the opportunity to simply admire the show while sipping champagne, to watching the show over dinner, immersed in the elegant and sensual atmosphere of the venue, to backstage access to the dancers.
