Open Coed Elite Hip Hop was a masterful display of the best parts of the Hip Hop genre, combined with some incredible themes and concepts. There was every version of Hip Hop imaginable within this Final, and the crowd was treated to some seriously epic performances. Twelve teams from seven countries stepped up to the big stage, and the fight for the gold was a good one!
It was an intense battle at the top, but the last team left standing was Angels Dance Academy – ADA Dark Angels. The team representing for England went with an extremely heavy, hard-hitting, sharp Hip Hop routine, and it paid off for them in the end. The core of the routine was the team’s fast pace choreography that was executed to near perfection. The formations were constantly changing and their incredible tricks came flying out of nowhere right when you least expected it! There was a sincere determination with every step, and you could tell that they were doing everything in their power to win. It was a true team effort, and they rightfully earned the title of World Champion.
Not too far behind in the silver position was Next Level Dance Co – Supremacy. Their samurai-themed performance was a work of art, and they brought the house down with their creative builds and tricks to complete the theme.
Also taking a podium place was Strut Performing Arts. They opened with a visually shocking introduction, and then kept up a pace that secured a podium spot without question.
The Architects Dance Company – Colossus from England and Velocity Dance – WOAH closed out the top 5 with incredible performances, as well.
Estilo Urbano (Columbia), Peppermint Dance Company – Exiled (Australia), Dazzlers – Queens (Scotland), Demoteam BCD – BCD The Unity (The Netherlands), and Dance Studio Enrique Vargas (Ecuador) completed the top 10 for this division. The Nations Cup was awarded to the top scoring team from each of the five highest placing countries. Those went to Dazzlers (5th), Peppermint Dance Company (4th), Estilo Urbano (3rd), Next Level Dance Co (2nd), and Angels Dance Academy (1st).
It’s always going to be an exciting event when these many teams show up with game-changing routines. Wishing some massive congratulations to every team that competed, especially those that took home medals today. Give it up for your World Champions, the ADA Dark Angels!
