Philippine Allstars: Champions Again in Malta Guinness Street Dance 2009

For the first time, the Malta Guinness street dance internationals were being held in Kenya. So, everything was top notch including the well built stage for the event. Nothing was left to chance.

Saturday came at last and the bright sun surely brightened up the faces of both competitors and the crowd at the Kenyatta International Conference Center (KICC). People from all walks of life came to witness the battle of the best. Ghanaians, Nigerians, Tanzanians, Pilipino, Kenyans among others.

The crowd’s anticipation was finally doused when singer/hype man DNG, who was the MC of the day, came on stage. He looked stunning in black designer jeans, jacket and a red t-shirt.

He introduced the first act which was done by the selected few from all the nine competing countries. They warmed the stage with a simple well choreographed dance routine.

Then it was time to get down to business. Every group had their own unique dance routines, but there are those who literally outdid themselves on stage and won the hearts of the crowd and definitely the Judges from United Dance Organization.

Nigerians were among the crowds favorite, their second performance which was a play tucked in a dance made their winning chances high. While Tanzanians, our good neighbors, showed Kenyans what they are made of by pulling some fast well rehearsed stunts along with mad stage energy.

While Sisko, our own Kenya representatives also did their best to keep the title at home. Their post election theme came out as intended and their dance routine went well with the theme.

On the zone of choreography and synchrony, France simply got it right while the Beast mode from USA did not live up to their name and certainly the county’s dance reputation.

Without a shadow of doubt, the all stars from Philippines were announced the winners of the much coveted $25000 and the international dance title. Adorned in black shinny long jackets, the group pulled stunts that we only get to see Jet Li do in his movies. From building unbelievably high pyramids and flying over them to shaking their waists and flying on stage, the all stars danced true to their name. Our own Sisko ended up in fourth place.
