For the second week in a row, Classic Dancers emerged as the fore-runners of the Charles Chocolate Dancin' Dynamites competition.

With $15,000 being awarded to the group who earned a perfect score from the judges, Classic Dancers were in their element and once again delivered a show-stopping performance.

Not to be outdone, however, were Cameron Skankaz, who also earned top marks from judges Kerry-Ann Henry and Richie Stephens. With the the challenge this week called 'Black Out', dancers were required to start their performance in the dark. Richie Stephens told the group that they were the most entertaining thus far.

One of the better groups on the night were the Dustville Dancers. The group's routine earned forwards via vuvuzelas and dutch pot covers from eager fans in the audience.

"Each week you try to take it to a different level. This group has the maddest routines I've seen in a long time," Henry said.

Other notable performances for the night came from Born Steppers and Dynamic Motionz. Host Jenny Jenny told THE STAR that the concept for this week was inspired by the church.

"The Charles Chocolate Dancin Dynamites show is pre-planned so every year the concept is already done from the year before. Last year, I noticed that this 'Black Out' challenge was being done by a lot of church groups so I thought that we needed to try this week the Dynamites. The Lord bless the church group because they do a lot of black lights and black out concepts. The dancers this year are so good that we are now changing the concept weekly. Deejay Roderick also did a very good job with the dub tectonic kinda vibe," she said.

She added that even if Jamaica is believed to be taking several steps, where dance and culture are concerned, the world is trying its best to play catch-up.
