*Beyoncé’s featured dancers, Les Twins, have partnered with Kids Write Network (KWN) to help raise awareness about youth mental health.

The twins, Larry and Laurent Bourgeois, are currently touring with Queen Bey during her Renaissance World Tour, but come October, the dynamic duo will kick off their RISE for Mental Health U.S. tour in Atlanta, The Blast reports.

“Each person has a unique story that has allowed us to show people how to tell their own story through dance. We have worked using our dance/movement all our lives to heal people so to be working with the KWN 6-step program was a natural alignment for us,” the French twins exclusively told The Blast.

“The KWN has had a positive impact on mental health. It is the only mental health intervention that has been adapted and implemented into four arts – writing, art, music and now dance being the last one with us. It made sense, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” the siblings added. 

The brothers teased that the KWN workshops involve “exercises that we use that show students and teachers how strong their resilience, confidence, and determination is.”

“Students are struggling with confidence because of past issues, or current. Once they have gone through the workshop, they have this incredible sense of freedom which is our goal; to give participants another option to help them deal with their emotions that puts them back in control to make positive choices,” they said.

“We believe that mental health is about being able to focus and have discipline. It isn’t about having something ‘wrong.’ It is about handling all the difficult situations we are faced with, or negativity we may feel or encounter and processing it in more positive ways that puts us back on track to our focus and discipline.”

Les Twins are looking forward to “being able to give youth the confidence they need and should have to be able to live the best version of their lives.”

“We have worked with thousands of students over the years, and we have seen how mental health can impact them,” they told The Blast. “Being able to show them that they can clear the chaos and control their outcomes is the ultimate gift we can give.”
