Philippine All Stars Wins Gold in 2008 World Hip Hop Championships

Philippine All Stars bested more than 1,000 dancers from 33 countries by winning the title in the 2008 World Hip-Hop Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada Sunday, August 3, 2008.

Three judges gave the Philippine All Stars an aggregate score of 8.94. A large part of the score (5.35) was earned by way of the group’s infusion of artistic steps in their choreography.

And to that, competition judge and multi-Gramy awardee MC Hammer said: “The Filipino artists…they continue to evolve in a global basis. They take art and dance seriously.I am very proud of the level that the Philippines over all have developed into.”

Judge Shane Sparks of the hit tv show So You Think You Can Dance also had high praises for the group.
