    Their Nappytabs clothes line moniker has been adopted as their nickname by the dance community and 'SYTYCD?' executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.
    Another nickname is the Dynamic D'umos. (so which is worse?)
    He was a pre-med student and she was looking at a degree in communications when they trashed their original career paths for dance.
    They got their start as part of the dance company Culture Shock, choreographing corporate industrials at Las Vegas conventions for companies such as Nike and Levi.
    They rarely work apart, meaning they're working, playing and living together 24/7. (redundancy anyone?)
    Napoleon was part of the '80s west coast hip hop scene and he was cast as an extra in 'Breakin’ 2: Electric Bugaloo (1984).'
    They have choreographed for the Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic.
    Shortly after marrying they moved to LA and their careers took off.
    They've done choreography for the Grammy Awards, the Billboard Music Awards and 'Soul Train.'
    They are credited with developing what's been termed 'lyrical hip hop,' a style of dance that tells a story and where facial expressions and body language are just as important as dance steps.
    They've done creative directing for tours and live events, such as Kanye West's 'Glow in the Dark Tour,' Christina Aguilera's 'Back to Basics Tour,' Ricky Martin's 'Black and White Tour' and Celine Dion's 'Taking Chances Tour.'
    Their recipe for a successful marriage includes communication, respect and having fun.
    Napoleon states, 'I could have gone to med school, and she could have been in the advertising world. But we’re dancing! It doesn’t get any better than that.'
