FOR THE fifth straight year, the Communication Arts Students Association (CASA) Footworks once again owned the dance floor as it defended its championship title in Cypher, the annual inter-major street dance competition in the Faculty of Arts and Letters (AB).
Besting 11 other dance troupes in AB, CASA Footworks garnered 96 points for its Madrid, Spain-themed dance routine.
“Sobrang thankful ako, but that doesn’t mean na hindi na kami mag-stop sa pag-grow. And for me, that serves as an inspiration to further push ourselves para ma-achieve ‘yung goals namin,” CASA Footworks captain Codie Larracas told the Flame.
Earning 87.3 points, Asian Studies’ Furasia landed as first runner-up with its Japanese-inspired performance.
Economics’ Econlibrium, last year’s first runner-up, meanwhile went home as second runner-up with its Milan, Italy-themed routine that earned the troupe 85 points.
CASA Footworks’ Tristan Torres and Meg Camua from Literature’s Ilaya were awarded Best Male and Female Stunner, respectively.
In celebration of the AB Week, dance troupes of each society stunned the crowd as they gave Artlets a peek of the cultures of different countries around the world. F MARIA EDEN T. DINO
