Je célébrerai le nom de Dieu par un chant,

je proclamerai ta grandeur par des louanges. (Psaumes 69:31)

The vision of


Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

(Psalm 150:6)

"Dancing Life" (danser la vie) is much more than just a choreographed dance performed on stage or a lesson in a dance studio behind closed doors... It is an authentic way of breathing, loving, perceiving, touching and celebrating every given moment, even where anxiety and possible limitations and disabilities are present. All it takes to set your life dancing and singing in The Source is to take a few steps out in the street, to look out on the world and to release an inner "connected" smile..." 

Christine Jeanville

The Machol Danser la Vie structure and ministry was born in 2005 and its goal is to promote a culture of Life, of Rest and of Movement, through music, song, fine art, multi-media and dance.  A combination of courses (from beginner to professional level), and national and international missions, shows, concepts and concerts serve to reach this goal.

The adventure began in 1994, when prayer led to Christine receiving a spontaneous and astonishing healing in her knees. She was a dancer at the Opera House in Hanover at the time. She had to learn how to walk then dance all over again, embracing the simple but also profound nature of the gift of movement, connecting the inner and outer self together. "It was first and foremost a healing of my spiritual and emotional knees that took place, and then my physical knees simply followed." 

After noting a lack of positive inspiration amongst choreographers, an absence of creations which could be keys of Life for the public, confusion of the terms beauty and success, and also the daily backstage life and suffering of the dancers, always turning around the same hubs and far from the glorious image shown on stage, she chose to leave the beaten track. She explores the extraordinary current and modern pearls contained in the Bible. Watching her dance, people are healed spiritually, emotionally … and physically.

Sodapop, a pioneer in the hip hop world, joined her in 2001, adding masculinity, the urban dimension, positioning and an eye for multi-media, together with experience and a striking complementarity clearly visible to those who see them moving in synergy... They married and founded Machol Danser la Vie together, inspired by the story of Machol and his sons (see the introduction). Today the team is growing, teachers are being trained, research is being carried out with doctors and scientists and important projects are emerging.

For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:19)

How can dancing make people whole, set Life flowing around the world and bring healing from the past?

Simply taking care of people and releasing their true colours of expression has positioned us as ambassadors to take care of nations – their past, their present, their relationships with others…

Dance is a universal language transcending words and therefore language barriers. It's like a banner that leads you through the door from the invisible into the visible realm. Dance embodies a Kingdom and its priesthood.  Dance enables us to connect with others, makes our hearts beat together as one, and lets healing bring us closer to God and to one another.  This in turn brings fresh synergy to the worldwide family of which we are a part.

With countries,

the people are the body,

their culture is the soul and the government is the spirit.

If you want to bless a country,

you need to take all three of these dimensions into consideration,

just like you do with a person”


Sodapop Ch. Jeanville


I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving. (Psalm 69 v 31)

Worship is an important part of ministry at Machol Danser la Vie.

Great power of celebration, praise transports and connects us directly to God. This transformative dimension establishes us heart to heart as one choir with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit through music, song and dance, the three being intimately interlaced in the biblical roots.

The potential in each member of the Body is set free in a three in one dimension of unity as our spirit sings, and healthy, heartfelt emotions release our relationship with God from the very depths of our being xxx as the Body of Christ moves in dance, lifting our perfume of adoration towards Heaven.


Praise and creative expression restore, release and participate in the healing of an individual and a nation, by the very principle of our unity and mind, soul and body involvement, in this movement of Life ordained by God.

LOVESICK - Fous d’Amour

“LOVESICK” is a worship day session around the theme of the passionate burning love that should be poured out of our lives at the feet of Christ,

in amazing creative ways. As we minister Him, the oil, the colours, the fragrances, the textures, the sounds, the inspirations and identities are

released. The arts are not for a performance but for an intimate relationship of Love, bringing the invisible in the realm of the visible, a sign for the world and a preparation of the Bride

If you want more information about Machol Danser la Vie ministries, please send us a message and we will be happy to respond.


We are excited to announce a new partnership with a non-profit organization in the United States called Impact France.

Impact France mobilizes prayer for and facilitates giving to French ministries and provides a very easy way to make tax deductible gifts to French organizations working for the Kingdom. After spending time hearing their heart and mission from the Lord, we saw that they would be a true partner to join forces and support God's work through "Machol Dance and Live!" ministries. So, if/when the Lord leads you to give financially, we would ask that rather than go through PayPal, which offers no tax receipt, is a for-profit company, and is not Christian, that you support Machol through Impact France going forward. This allows Kingdom resources to stay fully in the Kingdom and provides you with a tax receipt!

They also have a wide variety of options to give and a team to work with you and answer any questions you may have.

You can find our new giving page here:

This page can be shared with others and is also easy to remember! 

We pray that this new option to give is a blessing for you and allows you to more easily deploy God's resources as He leads!

If you are not living in the USA, you can click on the "To donate Paypal button" or "Bank Account IBAN" button below to chose how you would like to make your donation.

With Love and Affection in Him,

Christine, Sodapop, and the Machol Dance and Live ministries team
