TVA, Quebecor Content and Fair-Play are proud to welcome the amazing French dance duo Les Twins to Révolution, Quebec’s largest TV dance competition. With millions of social media followers, these hip-hop phenomenons will become masters on Révolution this fall on TVA, alongside Lydia Bouchard and Jean-Marc Généreux.
From Beyoncé to Révolution
Born in Sarcelles, north of Paris, identical twins Larry and Laurent Bourgeois started on their path to stardom 10 years ago. Born in a working-class family of 9 children, these self-taught dancers have gone from suburban street corners to the world’s most prestigious stages. One day, while dancing on the sidewalks of the Champs-Élysées to earn a bit of money, Laurent attracted the attention of Alicia Keys, who was performing in Paris. She was so impressed that the very next day, she invited to duo to join her on stage at the Zénith.
After winning several competitions and becoming YouTube sensations, the brothers started performing with the likes of Cirque du Soleil, Missy Elliott, Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
As part-time models, Les Twins have also stepped on the catwalk for big names like Jean-Paul Gaultier and Chanel. Last summer, these new-style pros blew away Jennifer Lopez and went on to win the first edition of NBC’s World of Dance in front of millions of TV viewers. The show also aired on TVA this winter. The hip-hop mavens are also inspired choreographers, who travel the world to share their passion through dance workshops.
“We’re delighted to join ‘Révolution’ alongside Lydia Bouchard and Jean-Marc Généreux. This will be a great opportunity for us to reconnect with Quebec and discover its talent. See you this fall for this revolutionary show!!”
Larry & Laurent Bourgeois
“Quebecor Content is extremely proud to welcome Les Twins to its Révolution team. After winning World of Dance and collaborating with some of the biggest international stars, they’ve clearly demonstrated their phenomenal talent. As former TV dance competition champions, they’re uniquely poised to give our contestants insightful advice and understand what they’re going through. Art knows no boundaries, and we are simply delighted to bring them on board with Lydia Bouchard and Jean-Marc Généreux.”
Ginette Viens, Vice President, Brands & Content, Quebecor Content
“What better way to complete the Révolution masters panel than with the world’s best urban dancers! I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that Les Twins will be joining Jean-Marc Généreux and Lydia Bouchard to help discover local talent. There’s no doubt that they’re already inspiring an entire generation of dancers, and having them join our team is a testament to the international scope of the Révolution format.”
Guy Villeneuve, Executive Producer, Fair-Play
RÉVOLUTION is an original concept developed by Fair-Play and Quebecor Content to shine a spotlight on Quebec’s best dancers. Over 3,000 of them – people of all ages performing in all styles of dancing – auditioned for the show this winter in the hopes of qualifying for this exceptional TV dance competition, for a chance to win the $100,000 grand prize. Muse Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse had the opportunity to meet many of these talented dancers and she’s now working tirelessly in preparation for the fall launch of this major new variety show, taping this summer.
