RESUME

Les Twins

The twins were born on December 6, 1988 in Sarcelles, a commune in the northern suburbs of Paris, France. They are the youngest in a large, Guadeloupean[5]extended family of 9 children that includes two other sets of twins, and a brother 25 years their senior.[4]

Neither Larry nor Laurent received any formal dance training. Instead, they learned by observing other breakers, lockers, and poppers and by teaching themselves classical ballet techniques.[6][7][8] At the age of 12, they began performing in concerts and musicals. According to WAD Magazine, "They were born dancers. They walked at 5 months, seriously moved their bodies at 18 months old, and at 9 they showed off steps they had invented to youngsters twice their age in their neighborhood."[9]

In 2005 the brothers recruited five members to form their own dance team called Criminalz Crew, spending the next few years competing in hip-hop tournaments and entertaining crowds as street performers and in clubs.[4] In 2007 they danced to sold-out audiences in the musical Pas de Quartier at France’s esteemedAvignon Festival.

Larry and Laurent have traveled the globe teaching their original choreography in countries including the U.S., France, Japan, Canada, Russia, Germany, Italy, Finland, Ukraine, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Kyrgyzstan. Crowds of up to 5000 people have been in attendance at some of their international dance workshops.[9]

In 2010 they choreographed the dance sequence to the song Jump by Kris Kross in the Wii video game Just Dance 2.[37]

In June 2011 Fox broadcast a portion of the audition piece of contestants D*Day (Damon Bellmon and Deon Lewis) on Season 8 of the dance competition So You Think You Can Dance.[38] Although they were accused by many of plagiarizing their choreography from Les Twins’ World of Dance San Diego performance on YouTube, D*Day was allowed to proceed to the next stage of the competition.[39] In 2012 Bellman and Lewis returned on the SYTYCD Season 9 Atlanta auditions show claiming (with archived footage from the Show) their prior year’s routine was a homage to Les Twins’ work.

In March 2008 Les Twins gained the attention of the dance community by defeating French street dancers Joseph Go and Meech Onomo at the semi-finals of the prestigious international dance competition Juste Debout.[12] Following that success, they were finalists and audience favorites on Season 3 of Incroyable Talent(the French equivalent of Britain’s Got Talent) aired on M6.[2] On November 13, 2008 the twins were among the top twelve finalists competing on the Incroyable Talent finale show attended by Princess Stéphanie of Monaco and watched by over 4 million viewers.[13] In 2009 they were contracted to perform the two-man hip-hop comedy stage revue Twins choreographed by their long-time coach Abibou "Playmo" Kébe at the Théâtre Trévise in Paris.[14] In August 2010 a video of their performance on the World of Dance tour in San Diego went viral on YouTube.[3] On November 9, 2010 they made their U.S. television debut on The Ellen Degeneres Show. In March 2011 the twins won the Hip-hop New Style division at Juste Debout, beating out over 353 dancers.[4] That same year they performed alongside Beyoncé at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival, the BET Awards, and the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series, garnering even greater attention on the world stage.[17][18]They also joined her on the French television shows X-Factor and Le Grand Journal to promote her then upcoming album 4, and were the only featured male dancers in the alternate version of her "Run the World (Girls)" music video.[19] Their collaboration with Knowles would continue in May 2012 at the Revel Presents: Beyoncé Live concert series in Atlantic City.[20] Larry and Laurent were star dancers on the Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour by Cirque du Soleil until December 2011.[21][22] On March 6, 2012 the pair joined rapper Big Sean on-stage at the after-party for Kanye West’s Fall 2012 fashion show at La Halle Freyssinet in Paris.[23] One month later they performed with Missy Elliott and Timbaland at Hennessy's "Wild Rabbit" campaign launch event in New York.[24] Les Twins debuted on Japan’s largest television network Nippon TV on July 24, 2012.[25] During November 2012 they guest starred on the television dance competition Everybody Dance![26] in Ukraine and teamed up again with Missy Elliott at the Beats on the Beach event in Abu Dhabi and the Back2Black Festival in Rio de JaneiroBrazil.[27][28] In December 2012 the twins began working on multiple projects with Sony Japan.[29] In 2013, they toured with Beyoncé as the only male dancers on The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.[30][31] The duo was also featured in the music video of "Blow", from Beyoncé's self-titled fifth studio album. In 2012 and 2014, Les Twins appeared in episodes of Avengers of eXtreme Illusions, the revolutionary dance series by Welling Films. After the videos came out, Les Twins put their own cut of Welling's work on their own YouTube channel. In 2014, Les Twins joined Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z on their On the Run Tour. In 2015, Les Twins appeared in a special freestyle dance in the song "Tattoo" in Bollywood film ABCD 2,[32][33] which was directed by Remo D'Souza.
