July 2016:Stéphanie Détry showed her tap dancing skills in the 2016 concert series at the Vrijthof in Maastricht. Lou Bega performed his mega hit “Mambo # 5”, followed by “Tutti Frutti”.Stéphanie climbed on the piano while Ward Vlasveld was playing, threw her skirt and went on tap dancing!

March 2016. A fan found a video clip on YouTube of Stéphanie Detry and her husband performing at a tap dance club. Stéphanie is violinist and pianist in the Johann Strauss Orchestra, but she also has tap dance qualities and she can play the ukulele. Stéphanie lives in the French speaking part of Belgium, so she is speaking French in the Claquettes Club.Very nice video! We are always amazed to see how multi talented the JSO members are.

Since January 1st 2017 five musicians of André Rieu’s Johann Strauss Orchestra, started a new ensemble, named “The Gracenotes”. Their repertoire is ranging from music of the 18th century to romantic melodies, operetta, musical comedy and a touch of jazz. The unusual compositions require the five members to make new musical arrangements, giving the group a style which is both playful and unique.From left to right: Nadejda Diakoff, Karin Hinze, Anna Reker, Laurianne Thysebaert, Stéphanie Detry.
