The back-to-back UAAP Streetdance Competition champions La Salle Dance Company—Street regained the title, their third overall, as they bested six other crews, Saturday afternoon at the University of Santo Tomas Plaza Mayor.
The Taft-based squad finished with 89 percent to take the title they last held in 2012. The De La Salle University squad showed a new flavor into the competition stage by including freestyle into the routine.
Graduating senior Paolo Deluria shared that, “Actually our theme is party/battle. At the start, party, then the battle. It is not usual for competition to include freestyle; usually if it’s competition, it’s choreographed.”
Three-time champions University of the Philippines Streetdance Club finished in second place. Using hits from Grammy Award winners, the Diliman-based crew showed smooth transitions to different styles to stake their claim as one of the best.
UP Street amassed 88.75 percent, just 0.25 shy of another title.
Season hosts University of Santo Tomas PRIME showed a more powerful performance this year, veering away from the socially-relevant routine they did last season. In the end, they finished in third with 85.75 percent.
UE Armada (83.25), FEU Dance Company (79.25), Company of the Ateneo Dancers (78.5), and Adamson CAST (75) round up the order of performance.
