World Hip-Hop Championships in Las Vegas
The dance troop, Philippine All Stars, won the title at the 2008 World Hip-Hop Championship in Las Vegas last weekend, but our own NP member, vegaswatchdogdotcom, caught up with some competitors in a local McDonalds who were just excited to have taken part.
More than 1,000 dancers from 33 countries took part in the annual competition.
Three judges, one of them former rap star MC Hammer, reportedly gave the All Stars an aggregate score of 8.94 — 5.35 of which was credited to the group’s “infusion of artistic steps in its choreography.”
The 15-member All Stars previously clinched the top prize at the 2nd International Hip-Hop Open in Italy, and likewise bagged the gold at the 5th World Hip-Hop Championship held in Redondo Beach, California.
