Groove is an Australian-based dance competition establised in 2002 that provides an outlet for young people to express their energy on the dance floor. An ultimate ultimate event for the savvy and younger audience – funkier, edgier and in-your face, bringing together the exciting world of dance with the street-smart urban culture. It was year 2006 when Groove’s popularity has spread across the Tasman, to New Zealand, in Japan and the Philippines. It was then named as World Supremacy Battlegrounds International Championships.
An estimated of 50 crews from NCR – Luzon are already preparing for their competition pieces, but only 15 of them will proceed to the finals to get the bragging rights. “Sasali kami dito para mapatunayan naming na we are versatile (We will join this competition to prove that we are versatile),” Paul of Funkadelics, an aspiring competitor from Laguna, said, despite jazz being their main genre of dance.
Groove, on its 3rd year in the Philippines marked Xtatic Crew from Cagayan de Oro as its first champion while Exquisyth Dance Group from General Santos City as its second. The crews represented Philippines on the World Supremacy Battlegrounds International Championships on Australia and carried back bacons by captivating top awards. Now on its third instance, who do you think will get crown of the anticipated regional hip hop dance competition? Do you think those crowned delegate will also top the International Championships?
