(The Philippine Star) - March 23, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — It’s the beat of the street and rhythm is its lifeblood. It’s pop, sass and heart-thumping action rolled up into one. The result is fantastic entertainment.

The University Athletic Association of the Philippines unveils today its eighth annual streetdance competition at the Araneta Coliseum where the premier collegiate league’s best exponents of hip-hop, breakdance and bodypopping compete for bragging rights and the pleasure of entertaining its loyal fans.

Held every season as one of the much-awaited highlights between competitive sports action, the Streetdance Competition features dance-offs in the collegiate (seniors) and high school (juniors) divisions.

This year, defending seniors champion Far Eastern University’s Dance Company, “Street Alliance” looks to bring home its second straight crown while the University of Santo Tomas juniors team, “Galvanize,” hopes to do a repeat of its Season 80 winning performance.

It was FEU’s first streetdance crown ever in Season 80 as it dethroned La Salle and relegated the University of the Philippines to second runner-up.

La Salle and UP are the winningest schools in streetdance with three championships each. UST Galvanize is the first-ever juniors champion in this exhibition sport.

This year’s performance order will be the Adamson “Cast,” the National University “Underdawgz,” the FEU “Street Alliance,” the Company of Ateneo Dancers, the La Salle Dance Club, the University of Santo Tomas Prime, the UP Street Dance Club, and the University of the East’s “Street Warriors.”
