Dancers 'bring it' at KSA auditions
Dancers brought the house down with awesome performances during the Kingston & St Andrew (KSA) auditions of the Charles Chocolates Dancin' Dynamites competition at Lime Light Entertainment Complex recently.
The competition is in its 11th season. It has grown leaps and bounds under the guidance of host and founder Jenny Jenny.
Problem Squad and NGU Skankers got the highest scores from judges Orville Hall and Kerry-Ann Henry as both tallied 19 out of 20.
Problem Squad, was given the first perfect score by judge Orville Hall for their clean, entertaining set. Kerry-Ann, praised them up for their use of the songs and stage, and dished out a nine.
"This is the baddest chereography!" Judge Hall exclaimed.
The judges loved NGU Skankas' routine as they brought energy to the forefront.
The best dance team in terns of creativity, went to Kryptic Clean. Their time on stage was filled with props and high-tempo moves that kept the audience glued to their set.
Of the high schools, Vauxhall High got the nod with nifty moves and vibrancy. They won the hearts of the crowd and judges. They were also fierce in the face-off segment and got the nod over Team So Bad.
Cumberland High represented their school well, surprising the judges after appearing timid, at first, but quickly sprung from their shells to receive decent scores.
Guest performer Masicka brought his A game and had the audience busy from his first syllable with hard-hitting songs such as Dem Ago Dead and Hard Ball. Tony Chrome also did a short stint on stage.
