La Salle wins 3rd UAAP Streetdance title
De La Salle added another title to its collection and this time, the school won the UAAP Season 79 Streetdance Competition.
The De La Salle Dance Company Street bested six of its rivals to secure its third Streetdance title Saturday at University of Santo Tomas just before the UAAP Season 79 formally closed.
La Salle also won the event in 2011 and 2012.
Paolo Deluria, member of the LSDCS, said their theme of a battle-infused party was a reflection of their struggle to bring the trophy back to their camp after failing to defend it in 2013.
“It’s like the LSDCS against everybody else,” said Deluria who is graduating from the team. “Because we’ve been through so much and having to show what we’ve been preparing for so long is so fulfilling for us.”
La Salle’s score of 89 narrowly edged silver medalist University of the Philippines’ 88.75 while host school University of Santo Tomas finished in third with 85.75 points.
