The title refers to star Eugenie Fougere who made this "dance" a hit in New York theatres. Again, when watching something like this it's best to remember what year that it was made. For 1899 films, they weren't trying to tell a story or blow your mind with special effects. More times than not studios would go to Broadway or various playhouses and just film famous acts so that they could get movies out there to people who would then pay for them. This "dance" really won't impress anyone today as it's quite silly and bad for that matter. Still, it's fascinating to watch this film just as a piece of history as to what people were spending their free time on.
