DANCE STAR’s URBAN CHAPTER SENIOR DIVISION WORLD CHAMPION Hails from the PHILIPPINES!
May 28, 2018 UDOU TEAM
DanceStar, the biggest global dance platform there is just so happens to have concluded the World Finals last May 27, 2018 at Porec, Croatia.
Every year, more than 55,000 dancers worldwide pass through this competition platform and only the BEST OF THE BEST make their way to the DanceStar World FINALS!
The Journey to Dance Stars World Finals (How?)
The road to Dance Stars World Finals starts out by being a qualifier. Aspirants get a chance to battle it out on their own national stage before they come out as the representative qualifier for their country onto the international round. Last May 24, 2018 for the first time in Dance Star history, Manila became officially a part of the very first Dance Star Philippines Qualifier rounds, and the overall winner of DanceStar Philippines Qualifiers will get an ALL EXPENSE PAID TRIP to the DanceStar World Finals and represent the Philippines in the BIGGEST and MOST SPECTACULAR dance event in Europe, and who won it? Well, it is the up and coming dance group led by Rhemuel Lunio, Rockwell.
Here is their winning performance for the Dance Star Philippines Qualifier Round. Check it out.
Rockwell, hailed URBAN CHAPTER SENIOR DIVISION CHAMPION
We are definitely not new to world championship titles. Our country, the Philippines is known to be a melting pot of talents from singing to dancing and well I guess everything in between. But in the recent years, this title is one of the most prestigious if not the most unexpected. And we couldn’t be more proud of them for bringing home the gold.
Rock★Well is a group comprised of diverse hiphop enthusiasts who are committed to the Rock★Well style. This style is mainly inspired from Luther Brown and LennyLen, who are both choreographers based from Toronto, Canada, and from Rockstars leader and choreographers, Arnel Serrano and Kenjhons Serrano. This style became known for its unique, cool flavor in dancing and delivery of different choreography. Rockwell is nonetheless led by our very own Rhemuel Lunio, who aside from dancing is also the lead choreographer and a rising DJ.
The team, after becoming the over-all winner for the Dance Star Philippines Qualifier has went on to bring more prestige and title as they won 1st place in the Urban Chapter Senior Division, the 2nd place in the World Finals Gala Night with an added bonus as they also got a special award for having the best choreography.
Check what went down below on the Gala Night where Rockwell placed 2nd:
All of which is a testament to how talented they are. The group is set to come back home today, and we are set to get an exclusive interview as we feature them.
So watch out for that interview and who knows they might even get to perform their award-winning dance set. Either way, from all Filipinos all over the nation, we extend our heart-felt Congratulations to you guys. We thank you for keeping the Philippine banner way high up there!
Amidst all politics and shenanigans out there, a news like this truly warms the heart and we cannot be more ecstatic that you, Rockwell not only brought pride and joy to all of us, but you’ve also set us on the map once again. Here is to more outstanding performances!
