MANILA, Philippines — University of the Philippines Street Dance Club grabbed its first even UAAP street dance competition championship on Saturday at the SM North Skydome in Quezon City.

Clad in a get-up of maroon, grey and black, the UP Street Dance Club impressed the judges enough to steal the title away from back-to-back titlist De La Salle Company Street.
