The story behind the title: DANCING AT THE FOUNTAIN

Saturday, 9 July 2016  |  Admin

DANCING AT THE FOUNTAIN, Conor Kenny’s new book, takes its intriguing title from one of the participants’ stories.

Frenchman Luc Delafosse was at the time GM of the world-famous Hotel Burj Al Arab in Dubai. Michael Jackson had been staying at the hotel and when he was leaving – in Luc’s own words:

It was stunning to see Michael Jackson dancing around the fountain at The Burj Al Arab. On the way out of the hotel, at the top of the escalators, we passed near the fountain with the sequenced water display like a ‘musical’ show. Arriving at the fountain, Michael Jackson started to follow the tempo, snapping his fingers and suddenly started dancing around the fountain – unique! Special and fantastic!
