DreamPlay, the world’s first DreamWorks-inspired interactive play space, hailed Electro Groovers as the King Julien Dance Competition Year 4 grand champion.
The 11-member group, who hails from Quezon City, bested seven other contenders during the grand finals held at the Grand Ballroom — displaying their world-class talent in an exhilarating five-minute dance routine, which earned the fervent applause of the judges and the audience.
Also capturing the hearts of the audience are Cool Kidz Crew from Taytay, Rizal and Rock Kids from Quezon City, who placed as first and second runners-up, respectively.
Following an elimination round of 16 groups, the other finalists who made the cut were Vibae Kids from Tondo Manila; Extreme Idols from Marikina, Team Malupet from Quezon City; Jyckz from Antipolo; and Little Warriors from Tondo, Manila.
“We congratulate Electro Groovers for their much-deserved win; and who, apart from showing their immense talent, also performed with great joy on the Dance Off stage. Witnessing them and other promising young performers give us immeasurable fulfillment and drive us to continue staging the King Julien Dance Off competition to provide an enjoyable platform to discover new talents and hone their abilities,” said Michael Ziemer, City of Dreams Manila’s Vice President for Hotels, Food & Beverage.
DreamPlay’s King Julien Dance Off first opened its doors in 2016 to talented dance groups from around the country, composed of children ages 7 to 14 years old. Since then, the Dance Off stage has also become a springboard for talented children to fulfill their dreams of performing in local and international stages.
Past grand winners include: Junior FMD Extreme (2016 Grand Champion), an all-boys group of former street children; Higher Level Kids (2017 Grand Champion), an all-boys group from Cavite; and GFAM (2018 Grand Champion), who went on to win in other dance competitions such as First Place in World Supremacy Battle Ground (Young Guns Division) in 2018, and a back-to-back championship title in the Inter School Dance Sports Competition (National Capital Region 2017 to 2018).
