#1 Perfectly-Coordinated Outfits
Whether it’s baseball jerseys, customised bodysuits or carefully DIY-ed costumes, any self-respecting dance crew should know the impact of matching ensembles. There’s definitely strength in formation fashion, and you won’t want to miss all the unique threads that the finalists will showcase on stage!
#2 Thrilling Performances
If you think the auditions were tough, wait till you witness the intensity of the finals for yourself. All the dance crews are set to bring their A game, along with their craziest choreographies and innovative moves. With a total of 15 teams set to take the stage, catch your breath and come along for the ride – we promise there won’t be a dull moment!
#3 Hard Work Paid Off
What we’ll see on stage during the big day might leave us in awe, but behind each performance lies endless amounts of practice and rehearsals. Lend your support to the hardworking folks who’ve put in relentless time and effort in perfecting every move. Who knows? It might even inspire you to start picking up dance as a hobby yourself!
#4 Teamwork and Showmanship
The beauty of dance is the flawless routine that requires every member to be on-point – and when a dance move is executed to perfection, there’s nothing quite like it. Which is why we can’t wait to see the teamwork play out among the various dance troupes and how well they can buzz up the crowd to vie for the coveted title as overall champions!
#5 Undeniable Talent
With 15 finalist crews spanning across two categories – the Secondary School category and ITE category – you could say that great things truly come in small packages; the youngest contestants are still only in secondary one! Which makes these youths’ poetry in motion that much more impressive on stage. After all, who can resist a good ol’ talent competition? And trust us, NYP Groove! 2018 will have no shortage of that!
#6 Mashups Galore
What’s a dance routine without an impressive soundtrack to accompany it? Street dance is famed for its fast pace and song selections and boy, do the contestants have a heap of surprises in store for show day. Expect mashups of EDM drops, hip-hop swag and R&B smoothness from the likes of Skrillex, Rihanna and G-Eazy to help bring forth the crews’ spectacular dance moves and leave you thoroughly wonderstruck. We can’t wait!
