Professionally known as Les Twins, identical twin brothers Laurent and Larry Bourgeois (born December 6, 1988) are Frenchdancers, choreographers, and models. Often referred to by their respective nicknames, “Lil Beast” and “Ca Blaze”, they are recognized internationally for their talents in new style hip-hop dancing.
Born and raised in Sarcelles, France, the self-taught dance duo became the darlings of the French audience in 2008 as finalists on the popular television show Incroyable Talent. They quickly rose to prominence in the United States after a video of their performance on the San Diego leg of the 2010 World of Dance tour went viral on YouTube, surpassing over 6 million views in less than a year. In 2011 they won the Hip-hop New Style division of the prestigious international street dance competition Juste Debout.
Les Twins have been featured dancers for various music artists, including Beyoncé Knowles and Missy Elliott. Standing at 6’4″ (193 cm) tall, the brothers have modeled for French haute couture fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier and appeared in many high-profile commercial advertising campaigns.
In addition to teaching their original choreography in workshops around the globe, they are also the founding members of the successful dance team Criminalz Crew.
