The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
The Dobre brothers are professional dancers. Performing since their childhood, they have been trained by their mother Aurelia Dobre, who is a former artistic gymnast, world champion, and silver medal winner at the 1988 Summer Olympics. Marcus and his brother started on Vine with the account ‘Twinbotz’. They didn’t receive the recognition they were hoping for at first. They considered quitting as it was also becoming quite time-consuming. They decided to keep at it for a while longer, and within a few months things started to change for the better as their old uploads started to become popular. This was when they met Paul, who was a successful Viner at the time. In September 2014, the brothers created a video which was dedicated to fellow Viners Lycia Faith and SelfieC. This video brought considerable fame to the twin boys’ account.
