This is my personal comment in yesterday’s UAAP Cheerdance Competition. I was not able to watch it live, not even in television because of work. But as soon as I got home, I patiently load every performaces of UP Pep Squad, UST Gawi, FEU Pep Squad, DLSU Pep and NU Pep… And my top3 schools were:
UP Pep Squad - that performance was near perfection. The routine was flawless, the synchronization was there and the stunts were amazing. Congrats UP! You deserve this championship! :)
UST Gawi - Not because I am a Thomasian but simply because the performance deserves this spot. You watched it guys. And you know deep in your heart that when the announcer was about to reveal the champion you’re unsure if it’s UP or UST. That’s how powerful Gawi’s performance is.
NU - I like the theme. So cute. That’s all.
I don’t know what happened and UST ended up in 4th place.Some says that it’s about the theme was vague and the stunts’ level difficulty were below average. But for me, the theme was VERY CLEAR. It was about the MIGHTY EXISTENCE OF UST FOR 400 YEARS. And the stunts were..wow. :/
….DLSU’s performance was..IDK. The costume was cute tho. FEU theme was Indian something right? But what happened with the costume? Kinulang sa effort! Hehe. And NU’s performance was shocking. I didn’t expect seeing that kind of cool routine from NU.
Anyway..panapanahon lang yan. Tho this year’s lost was heartbreaking, knowing that most of Gawi reps were rookies coming up with that kind of great routine, next year will be one hell of a comeback!
Gawi was lacking. I was a little disappointed, they did not meet my expectations. Three years ago, before I entered the university, I was damn sure UST’s Salinggawi Dance Troupe was the best. The quality of their performances declined every year.
Yes it was neat, but not as neat as the other schools did. The formations were messy 2 or 3 times. Plus, the lines of the dancers individually. Points were also deducted due to overtime.
