FEU Street Alliance rule Streetdance Competition

The Far Eastern University Street Alliance made history and bagged their first-ever UAAP Streetdance title with an old-school, gangster-styled performance that electrified the crowd at the Mall of Asia Arena, Sunday afternoon.

The season hosts, who had just formed in January, danced to vintage-sounding beats ala gangsters and proved they could  gate crash the podium, which has long been dominated by either the De La Salle University or the University of the Philippines.

FEU’s coach Randell San Gregorio, who is also the coach of the FEU Cheering Squad, expressed how proud he is of the feat of the very young team.

“It feels so surreal. We just started the group last January. I always tell them hindi naman tayo nag pe-place sa past, try natin iba baka mag work. It really worked for FEU. Yun goal namin sa start, makapag come up ng fresh na routine,” said San Gregorio, who is the mastermind of the gangster theme that resulted in an 85.75 score from the judges.

The Street Alliance is an amalgam of dancers from the cheering squad, dance company, street alliance, and other FEU students that took their chance to audition and join the young team.

“Pressed for time kami kaya we held auditions for the whole FEU. Struggle pa kami nun kasi konti lang pumunta,” San Gregorio added.

Last year’s champions La Salle Dance Company-Street settled as the first runners up with a 79.50 score award while last year’s silver medalists UP Streetdance Club bagged bronze with 78.60.

La Salle, together with their well-created routine, pulled off clever shirt changes to reveal their emoji theme. In true Green Archer fashion, they finished their performance with a bow and arrow emoji plastered on their backs.

UP, in very colorful shirts, wowed the crowd with witty and quirky moves to OPM tunes ranging from the 80s to the 2000s. They used songs like Parokya ni Edgar’s Bagsakan and Andrew E’s Mahirap Maging Pogi.

Champion FEU went home with PHP 70,000, while La Salle and UP took PHP 40,000 and PHP 30,000 each.
