It was on those very streets that they were spotted for their talent.

The duo were selected to take part in a performance by the UK charity Dance United and are now working as professional dancers and choreographers.

They are now determined to share their experience at their new contemporary dance school, back home in Addis Ababa.

The BBC Africa’s Helene Daouphars met them as they rehearsed before a performance in London.
