Crazy hip hop mixes and pop hits dominated all sounds at The Spring shopping mall in Kuching, Sarawak as 17 talented groups gave their all to compete for a spot in the finals of the Borneo Street Dance Competition on November 13. There was chest popping, hair flinging, fancy shuffling footwoork, sensuous body swaying and even a little acrobatics on stage to wow the crowd. Organized by the Tourism Ministry, the competition aimed to promote tourism through dance as well as provide a platform for streetdancers to showcase their talent in a more positive tone.
The groups who performed were Bs Boys Crew, LightningX Vanity Crew, Exothermic Crew, Milkshake, Funky Crew, Flamo, FunkyWockeez Crew, One Motion, Wryneckz-Girl Crew, Croxxie Crew, Feasible Crew, Nightmare Galaxy, Stepholic, B-Freedom Crew, Got Soul-soul Dance, Heartbreak Kids and Spirit. Stomping to the beat, some of the groups even incorporated theatrical acts to add some zest to their performance.
After careful deliberation, the judges ruled Got Soul-soul Dance as the top performers. The group, attired in funky overalls, was also a crowd favourite with their pop and lock movements. Following closely behind was first runner-up Feasible Crew, who garnered huge cheers with their on-stage confidence and pulsating breakdancing spins. No surprise, since the group was on reality dance battle crew show "Showdown 2010". The second runner-up title was won by Stepholic whose moves showcased rhythm, vibrancy and a style of their own. All three winners go on to compete in the finals slated to take place in Labuan on November 28. (The Star)
