'Muse' is a dance concept video about the source of inspiration and motivation in your life that encourages you to keep believing in yourself and the goals you want to achieve. A source that keeps helping you to push your boundaries in everything you do and getting the best out of yourself. That source can take various forms and can change through time. But unfortunately this source isn't a solid thing. Therefore it could be that at a certain point in your life, you don't really have something that encourages you or wich challenges you to outreach yourself. Sometimes this only last for a short moment, but sometimes it may take very long before you've found your drive again.
I've lost that drive for a long time and I wasn't sure in wich direction I wanted to go. I was looking for something that would push my limits again so I would continue to explore and develop myself. It was during that time, about a year ago, that I met somebody who made the confidence in myself grow and therefore made me very inspired and motivated again. This choreography is the result of that.
It may not be the most technical or energetic choreography, but it's a choreography that truly reflects my feeling I had at that time. And although I've tried to display that feeling in a video almost a year later, I still get the same feeling from this choreography.
Meanwhile, I still haven't found what I'm looking for, even though I'm not quite sure what it is that I'm looking for. But thanks to that person I do have found the motivation to keep searching for it and to keep motivating myself. I don't know how, but I'm sure I will find it!
Thank you for the time you made to watch my video and read my story.
