UP skips the UAAP Cheeerdance

The announcement was made about a month ago but not seeing UP in the line-up for the UAAP Cheerdance this year was still a bit sad even if you already knew it. The UP Pep Squad shared the reason for this boycott on their official Facebook page. Despite this, they still prepared a routine to prepare for their other commitments, including the Asian Cheerleading and Dancesport Competition. You can see their routine also on their Facebook page.

Of course, even without one of the most popular squads, the event proceeded and NU continued their dominance of this event, winning their fourth CDC championship in a row. I saw their routine and I have to say, they totally made up for last year's major mistakes. Their routine this year was fast, tight, incredibly technical with a very high degree of difficulty. It was also pretty clean. Needless to say, I was very impressed. Even with UP in the lineup, that routine would have been tough if not impossible to beat. Check out NU's routine here. 2nd place went to FEU while Adamson took 3rd. UST was a close 4th, while UE, DLSU, and ADMU rounded ou the 5th, 6th, and 7th places.

Congratulations, NU! I hope that the UP Pep Squad returns to the event next year.
