Take a look at the viral video of President Macron with his dancing teacher who became his wife, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : This Was President Macron With His Dancing Teacher / Wife 30 Years Ago!
People are sharing this video which claims to show a young Emmanuel Macron dancing with his teacher, who would end up becoming his current wife, Brigette Macron.
Truth : That Was Not President Macron With His Dancing Teacher / Wife!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Brigitte Did Not Teach Macron Dancing
Brigitte Auzière (born Brigitte Marie-Claude Trogneux on 13 April 1953) first met Emmanuel Macron at the La Providence High School in 1998, when she was a 40 year-old teacher, and he was a 15 year-old student and a classmate of her daughter, Laurence.
She was not his dancing teacher, but taught him literature and was in charge of the theatre class that he attended. Brigitte divorced her husband, André-Louis Auzière, in January 2006 and married Macron in October 2007.
Fact #2 : Brigitte + Emmanuel Macron Never Participated In Dance Contests
As far as I can tell – Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron never participated in any dancing contest.
So it would be quite impossible for them to appear in a dance competition 30 years ago.
Fact #3 : Viral Video Was Recorded In 2016
The viral video, which people claimed was Emmanuel Macron dancing with his teacher Brigitte, was not recorded 30 years ago.
Fact #4 : Music Was From 2014
You can also date the video using the music. It was certainly not 30 years old, but a much more recent – Toca Toca (Radio Edit) by Fly Project was published on YouTube on 14 May 2014.
Fact #5 : Viral Video Is Of Jenna Johnson + Jake Monreal
The viral video does not show Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron dancing in a competition.
The two dancers are Jenna Johnson and Jake Monreal, who were competing in “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation” on July 11, 2016.
The YouTube video had the title “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation – Jenna and Jake’s Ballroom Performance“.
In that video, Jenna and Jake performed a Cha Cha routine which was choreographed by Jean Marc Genereux, to “Toca Toca (Radio Edit)“.
Fact #6 : Jenna Johnson Is A Professional Dancer
Jenna Johnson (born April 12, 1994) is an American professional dance and choreographer, who was one of the mentors in that dance competition.
She competed with Jake Monreal in 2016, and made it to the Top 8 before elimination on August 1, 2016. She returned to the show in Season 14 to mentor Kiki Nyemchek, and made it to Top 4.
Fact #7 : Jake Monreal Is A Professional Dancer
Jake Monreal (born September 24, 2003) is now a 19 year-old professional dancer, who began dancing at the age of 10. At that time the video was recorded, he was just 12 years old.
Jake would become a professional dancer for Dancing with the Stars Junior in 2018.
