Black Is…Les Twins

Art & Music, Featured, Film & TV

If you watched Beyonce’s performance at the Billboard Awards and wondered who the two b-boys with the afros were, look no further. You were just baptized into Les Twins land.

(If this video jumps to the 5:00 minute mark, rewind it to 4:00 to catch Les Twins in action)

Twenty-two year old twins Larry and Laurent Bourgeois are natives of Sarcelles, Val d O’ise, France and have been dancing since the age of two. Though they are challenging to tell apart, their personalities come through in the differences in their dancing styles. Larry is known for his amazing footwork and high energy, while Laurent is best distinguished by his challenging “impossible” dance moves. Les Twins are a part of a larger dance crew in France called Criminalz Crew and have particpated in several dance competitions, including World of Dance and Battle of the Stylez.

I discovered Les Twins about a month ago and must give Beyonce her props for giving them great national exposure. We should see them making more appearances stateside from now on! Here are a few clips of Les Twins that made me fall head over heels for their dancing. I must warn you: they are addicting and you will want to watch them more than once!

    I just found these two about three weeks ago while trolling some youtube vids… and I have been hooked ever since. I watch their videos everyday. Obsessed??? Hmmmm… that’s an understatement. I’m sure it will wear off soon, but for now, I’m just enjoying the view. Can’t wait until they come here with Cirque Du Soliel!!! I plan on having front row seats… no matter how much the cost.
