The Far Eastern University Street Alliance faced lots of adversities including limited time of preparation before coming up with a routine that toppled the perennial favorites.
Lumbering at fifth place in the previous three editions of the competition, the Morayta-based dance group reinvented itself and came up with a gangster theme to steal the championship of the 80th UAAP Streetdance Competition Sunday at the MOA Arena.
FEU earned a total score of 85.75 points to capture its first-ever title and a hefty sum of P70,000.
“When we started the group last January, we just wanted to show something fresh na galing sa FEU,” said FEU coach Randell San Gregorio, who is also the school’s cheerdance team.
