The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Lucas Dobre had a great opportunity to lean dancing as his mother was already a dance teacher. Being the son of a world champion gymnast also helped Lucas a lot. A combination of dance techniques and physical exercises which he learnt from his mother helped him to create dance performances which were quite outstanding. There was almost no one who could match his style and technique. With the help of his twin brother and mother he was easily able to reach great heights in creating videos where their dance was the mainstay. Lucas and his brother even created a video called ‘When Your Mom is Better Than You’ to prove their point. The joint efforts of Lucas, Marcus and their mother Aurelia soon made the Dobre brothers famous on Vine and YouTube. At present they have 1.8 million followers on the Vine, 31.6K followers on Twitter and 833K followers on Instagram.

Behind the Curtains
