After a short period of training and practising, the crew started competing in local dance tournaments and other events, and it was in 2007 that they made their breakthrough by performing at France’s esteemed Avignon Festival in the Pas de Quartier musical.
From 2008, the twins started competing on their own and defeated French street dancers Joseph Go and Meech Onomo in the semi-finals of the dance show Juste Debout. After that, Les Twins featured in the Incroyable Talent, a French version of Britain’s Got Talent, and eventually reached into the finals of the show. Thanks to their initial success, they booked a gig at the Théâtre Trévise in Paris, performing the two-man hip-hop comedy revue “Twins”, for which a choreography was created by their coach Abibou “Playmo” Kébe. This launched them to stardom, and when their video of the World of Dance tour performance in San Diego became a hit, Les Twins were an internet sensation.
Looking to build up from there, they appeared in The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2010, while in 2011 they reached a whole new level by beating more than 350 dancers at the Juste Debout, which won them the Hip-Hop New Style division award.

They have also traveled the world to pass-on their choreography to a number of other dancers in such countries as Japan, Russia, Italy, USA, Hungary, Poland and many other countries, which has added a considerable amount to their net worth.
