Hip hop ya don't stop

Les Twins manage a feat that is rare in hip-hop dance: they keep it real and pay the bills. Known for their intensity and unique ability to finish each other's moves on the spot, Les Twins have performed on the Billboard Music Awards, the Ellen DeGeneres Show and Dancing With the Stars, but still find time to hit the clubs and enter competitions. In 2011 they won the New Style Hip-Hop division at the prestigious street-dance contest Juste Debout. This twin approach to hip-hop stardom will be on display tonight, when Les Twins take a break from dancing with Beyonce on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, for their first hour-length theatrical production. Les Twins will perform their solo show first, and then put their name, fame and a cash prize on the line, in a head-to-head dance battle against some of California's finest street-dancers. Their solo show will feature a guest appearance from the San Francisco Ballet, and invited competitors for the battle include Mighty Zulu Kings member Boogie Frantick, The Art of Teknique, and Soul Sector's Boy Wonder.
