Smart Jump In Dance Off 3 Winners and James Reid

Sunday, November 01, 2015

Pasil Elementary School, CSA Makati and PUP are the CHAMPIONS of #SmartJumpInDanceOff3 congratulations!

It was fun, it was exciting and it was grand. I couldn't even accurately describe what I saw earlier at the Smart Jump In Dance Off 3 held in Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.

This year, they've got about 25 teams who came from different parts of the country to vie for the finals round of the Grade School, High School and College divisions. I had my bets, especially the regional ones which had really good production value. I also was expecting some of them to have placed higher but I also agree in the judges decision. They might have some technical things looked at which is probably different from an ordinary spectators point of view. These guys, gals and everything in between are very skilled. I could tell some of them probably didn't have any sleep and perhaps some of them also chose to practice outside the Araneta Coliseum lobby instead of just relaxing in the bleachers before the show.

They traveled far just to make it to this round and it would be disappointing if they didn't give their best. Though from what we saw that evening, they had fun, they gave it their all, and it would already be an honor to be with the best mega crews in the country. Thanks to Smart for getting these teams a venue to show what they've got. Now the Philippines, soon the world!

This was the introduction of the schools, it was a grand number and I didn't get to take videos of the Grade School and High School anymore because of storage in my phone. But you can tell how excited we were seeing these schools work together in one number.

I like the rest of the people in Smart Araneta Coliseum just totally lost it when GFORCE did their thing on the dance floor. They're definitely world class! How I wish I saw their gig with Yanis Marshall when he was here.

SMART Jump In Dance Off 3 Grade School Finals

During the Grade School Finals, Pasil Elementary School took the championship with their spectacular Ninja inspired hiphop, crumping and acrobatics concept. Skill wise, you could see the difference of their performance compared with the other schools. I even forgot they were just in Elementary because from where we were sitting, they looked like veterans.

SMART Jump In Dance Off 3 High School Finals

The Highschool Finals was equally exciting. This time, CSA Makati took home the Championship in this category. They invested heavily in precise moves, cohesiveness and doing it like they've done it a hundred times on stage. I was rooting for La Salle Greenhills though which got First Runner Up.

SMART Jump In Dance Off 3 College Finals

The college finals was equally competitive. I think UPLB expected to win but the last performer PUP did a spectacular job to take the crown. They all did good, but dance is a judged sport so aside from the text votes which comprise 10% of the votes, it's up to the judges to see who's going to win.

Meanwhile for those waiting for James Reid, they went ballistic when he came out of the backstage. Here's his performance of What Do You Mean and his dance of Sweet Love by Chris Brown. I think he did his best here because his audience were mostly dancers. He was super cool, and super hot at the same time! Ladies were screaming, I couldn't even get the audio right because of that.
