When I first saw these super adorable French fellas, Laurent (“Lil Beast”) and Larry (“Ca Blaze”) Bourgeois, on Beyoncé’s HBO documentary, Life Is But A Dream, I had to check out their work. Their routines consist of many dance styles such as breakdance, dancehall, mime, jazz and ballet. What’s incredible is that they have never received formal training; all of their techniques are self-taught.

When the identical twin brothers are not ripping up the dancefloors or stages worldwide, they teach choreography classes and model.
