Spent most of the later half of Sunday afternoon with my siblings and cousins. Our cousin Alfonso is part of La Salle Greenhills’ Airfoce dance crew and they were vying for a position in the finals round of the Skechers Streetdance Battle.
LSGH Airforce took home the championship last year, a feat I was able to witness. I don’t think I was as proud as my uncle and aunt of my cousin’s achievement, but I that was one proud cousin moment right there.
The second round of this year’s eliminations was held as SM San Lazaro. Why there, I have no idea, but a lot of the contestants were not happy with the location choice (it was too far for most of them and it wasn’t big enough to accommodate both participants and those who wanted to watch), but they made do. We waited almost three hours before the program started, and waited another hour or so before LSGH took the stage.
There were seventeen high schools in this round, among of which were past finalists and strong contenders including Ateneo de Manila High School, Xavier, Miriam College and St. Paul Manila. They, along with LSGH, made it to the top five. It was a tense moment for us as we waited for the announcement of the five finalists, who’ll join the other five finalists previously determined in round one.
The Skechers Streetdance Battle will be held this November 23 at the SM MoA Arena. Go LSGH Airforce!
