Taking Over The World Stage
The dance community have done so much efforts over the years to be able to represent the Philippines in the world stage. We actually have gotten quite the reputation for Filipino dancers.
I’m sure you all remember the Philippine All Stars:
The Philippine All Stars dominated one of the most prestigious dance competition all over the world – World HipHop Dance Championship, in 2006 and bagging another championship in 2008. The first Asian dance crew to do so.
Hailing from Manila’s underground hiphop scene, they have witnessed how dancers are being considered second-rate performers. Their journey has definitely elevated the status of Filipino dancers and now we have over a hundred dancers competing for world championships.
“There are so many dancers who are way beyond our technique and skills, but All Stars believe in what we can do and who we are as Filipinos. We embrace that”, says Lema Diaz in her TED talk recalling how and why they win Championships
Defending The Title
Years after, still, numerous dance crews have come to the World Stage and compete for the title. This year we are about to defend it.
Trust us when we say, there are no one else more deserving than UPeepz.
But UPeepz is going to need our help.
