All the Winners of ‘World of Dance’
The Les Twins, Season 1
The Les Twins took home $1 million in prize money and became the first-ever winners of World of Dance. The French hip-hop-dancing twins Laurent Nicolas and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois wowed the audiences and judges. They performed unbeatable in-sync isolation movements and quality dance performances week after week. But the win did not come easy to them. Just before the Divisional Finals, Laurent suffered an injury to his right leg, which immediately put Les Twins’ at a disadvantage. That didn’t stop them.
Instead of dropping out, Laurent danced in the wheelchair and went on to make it to the finals performing on Kygo’s “Stole the Show” and “Scream” by Michael and Janet Jackson to become the winners.
Not to mention the Les Twins have toured and performed for celebrities like Beyonce and Jay Z on and they are only adding more to their list!
