Queen-inspired routine wins dance championship in Philippines
Queen continue to influence the music universe, inspiring artists all over the world including a dance crew in the Philippines hoping to take back a championship title.
After losing their title last year, La Salle Dance Company were determined to win at this year’s University Athletic Association Of The Philippines (UAAP) Season 81 Streetdance Competition with a little help from Queen. The La Salle crew absolutely killed it in their dance routine to a few of the band’s hottest tracks.
The dance was so impressive that the band even posted a clip of the routine on their Instagram. “We’re loving the ‘Ay-oh’ section... Incredible stuff,” the post reads.
The 20-piece crew flawlessly blended their movements to the beat, never out of sync with each other or the music.
The music combined tracks such as “Another One Bites The Dust,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Are The Champions” and others.
And the group are indeed champions. They went on to win first place along with 50,000 pesos, which is about $950 in U.S. currency. This is the crew’s fourth win at the competition.
