The 2017 UAAP Cheerdance Competition, a UAAP Season 80 highlight, happens December 2 at the Mall of Asia Arena. Here’s how to watch the live stream.
Eight competing cheerleading groups will showcase their school cheer, dance routines, stunts, pyramids, and tumblings during this exciting and breathtaking one-day annual event.
The reigning champion is the National University Cheer Squadron, who won 4 consecutive titles so far, but other teams would surely aim to dethrone them this year.
The sequence of performances on Satuday have been drawn. According to a Facebook post by ABS-CBN Sports, the order will be as follows:
- NU Cheer Squadron
- DLSU Green Animo Squad
- Adamson Pep Squad
- FEU Cheering Squad
- UE Red Squad
- UP Pep Squad
- UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe
- Ateneo Blue Bubble Battalion
The UAAP will use the same scoring system since 2013 for its Cheerdance Competition, per ABS-CBN. This is how the eight competing squads will be judged:
- The first thing to understand is that judges will be split into two panels with four members each: one is the cheer panel and one is the dance panel.
- The cheer panel will further be broken down into four categories: stunts, pyramids, tosses, and tumbling. All four categories will be overseen by an individual judge who will focus on his/her own category and give a score with a maximum of 100.
- The four judges in the dance panel will then abide by a criteria of Overall Effect (10 points), Choreography (30 points), Technique (40 points), and Group Execution (20 points) and will each give a score with a maximum of 100.
- Adding up the scores from the four cheer panel judges and the four dance panel judges, each squad may garner up to 800 points.
- However, a separate judge will also be on the lookout for any errors. A minor mistake entails a one-point deduction while a major mistake entails a three-point deduction.
- The final score will be determined by subtracting the deductions, if any, from the combined scores from the eight-member panel.
