La Danse is a composition that came to life in the idyllic streets of ‘s-Hertogenbosch (NL). Composer Jacco tells about the background:

‘’While I was playing in the street, a passerby girl was dancing to my live music. Her movement encouraged me to interact with her dancing in the music I improvised. I had lots of fun, and the girl too. We were both just playing around. The situation had a charming atmosphere, and I wanted to share that feeling with more people.

That start inspired us to make a music video, where a lady walking in the street hears music and dreams away on her (possible) history as a dancer. Because of these dreams, she feels that she can be a dancer right there at that moment. This way, she is dancing and dreaming at the same time.

With this song, I wish to inspire people to dream and to dance. The song already had me dancing quite some times, so I guess it can also spark other people to start dancing.’’

The video is made by Puck van Biemen from Puck’s Productions, with Emily de Clercq as dancer, Corrie van Rijthoven as main person.

For me, music is all about connecting. Connecting with each other, with nature, and with the core of self. Music can inspire wonderful things. It has given me the ability to express my vulnerable feelings. Nowadays it brings me in touch with who I really am and with my core values. Through my music, I hope to give the listener the same state of being connected with themselves and people around them.
