Backflips, cartwheels, scorpions, pyramids, and all sorts of stunts. You name it, UAAP 81 Cheerdance Competition got it!
It’s that time of the year again when we witness students from different prestigious universities in the Philippines dance like it’s their final day and defies gravity with their stunts.
UAAP 81 Cheerdance Competition was held at the Mall of Asia Arena last November 17 and had us at the edge of our seats as they showcased their amazing costumes, beautiful props, and outstanding routines.
Of course, the most awaited part of the event was the awarding ceremony! Here’s a run down of the winners and other details that you don’t wanna miss!
8th: DLSU Animo Squad
Amino La Salle! The DLSU Amino Squad’s Hairspray-inspired performance was full of energy regardless of their stunt mistakes. Even though they were last on the list, still kudos to the squad for giving their best and bringing back the ’60s feels through their hip and groovy dance moves to the tune of ‘Nicest Kids in Town’!
7th: Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion
Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion didn’t place last this year! Their celebration of the wonderful world of Disney routine was indeed magical. Their costumes and props were exceptional and the performance itself made us nostalgic of our favorite Disney movies and we appreciated its entirety. Great job, Ateneo!
6th: UP Pep Squad
The isko at iska ng bayan owned their color, maroon, as they showcased their Kulay ng Sablay routine! The UP Pep Squad gave their all and made their university very proud. Their stunts regardless of the mistakes were still astonishing. We salute these amazing individuals and the marvelous performance they gave us. Mabuhay!
5th: UE Pep Squad
UE Pep Squad, after placing 3rd in the podium last year, brought us their incredible Pintados routine this year. And even though the Red Warriors did not make it to the podium this season, we still appreciate the sweat and tears they’ve broken and shed to execute their performance.
4th: UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe
Bringing their own podium on the CDC stage, UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe came roaring as they channeled their inner Queen B, dancing to Beyonce hits! The crowd went wild and we did too! We thought the entire performance was spectacular and a lot expected them to be part of the podium. Sadly, they didn’t but there’s always next year. For now, awesome job, UST tigers! You had everyone shookt!
3rd: Adamson Pep Squad
The Falcons soared high and landed themselves 3rd on the CDC podium. The Adamson Pep Squad with their wild costume and vicious performance gave us all chills! We applaud their great efforts that truly paid off. Congratulations, ADU!
2nd: FEU Cheering Squad
FEU Cheering Squad brought us the funk and bagged the 2nd place in this year’s UAAP CDC. Their incredible performance had the crowd grooving! Their stunts were awesome and did not disappoint. A few mistakes but all in all astonishing!
CHAMPION: National U Pep Squad
National U Pep Squad came back from the dead and murdered the CDC stage with their Dia de los Muertos inspired routine. The squad reclaimed the championship and we are not surprised. After that swabeng swabeng performance with no penalties, they definitely deserved the win!
Despite the controversies, the event was a great success and we extend our congratulations to all the squads who slew the UAAP CDC stage!
