2018 marks the 9th year for our annual Teenage Dance Challenge (TDC) and the competition just gets more and more impressive each year. After a nail-biting round of auditions, a total of 17 powerhouse groups across the Street Dance and K-pop Dance Cover categories took the JCube stage on 13 October to battle it out for the crowning glory.
