CALIFORNIA – Canada’s pint-sized Pinoy dance prodigy duo “Lucky Aces” recently wowed audiences at the Annual Hip Hop International Championships in Southern California.
Lucky Aces is composed of two 12-year-old Filipino-Canadians Reyond “Lucky” Ancheta and Andree Camille “AC” Bonifacio.
“It’s just a lot of practice. You just have to practice really hard and believe in yourself,” Ancheta said.
The childhood duo began dancing together since they were 3 years old.
“His parents used to dance and that inspired him to dance and my auntie used to dance and inspired me to dance and become like her,” explained Bonifacio.
Lucky Aces became a viral Internet sensation. They’ve gone on to guest on the Ellen DeGeneres Show twice.
“We were really grateful because there are a lot of people that want to be on that show and they’re very talented and we were chosen to be one of them, so it was a great time,” Bonifacio said.
They’ve recently hit the stage with music sensation Arianna Grande.
“It was great because they treated us like family. They were welcoming. They welcomed us when we got there. We were like her family or something so we had a great time there,” she said.
They also shared their moves with others and teamed up with their own Canadian crew “Fresh” that made the semi-finals of this year’s Hip Hop International, known as the Olympics of dance.
“Both of them are actually really fun so we just put all of our effort into both of our routines,” Ancheta said.
The Vancouver-based dancers are also going Hollywood and beyond. They were in last year’s Step Up 5 All In, the latest in the successful dance film franchise.
After their Hip Hop International appearance, they went off to Germany to take part in the Super Kids TV show.
