Megacrew winning teams maintained the same ranking in the semifinal rounds. Kindred got the bronze, while fusion got silver,
The jukebox from Mexico received the gold medal, while LMN from Manila placed 5th.
This is the second year that Arizona hosted the largest and most respected street dance competition in the world — and just like last year, Arizonans welcomed our kababayans with open arms.
Although the Philippines did not get any gold this year, delegates and their chaperones were pleased with the championship results including the Fil-Am community of Arizona. A victory party was held to thank these dancers for making it to the international dance scene once again.
