Dustville Dancers take on Classic Dancers in the Battle Round.

After weeks of campaigning and hours of rehearsals, it was the trio called Classic Dancers, who walked away as the 2014 Charles Chocolate Dancin' Dynamite champions.

Waving banners and sounding vuvuzelas, patrons made their way into Jamaica College's Karl Hendrickson Auditorium to show support for their favourite team.

As is customary, Dustville Dancers, Cameron Skankaz, Fearless Skankaz and Classic Dancers each performed a routine, much to the excitement of the audience. This time, however, it was not left up to the judges to decide, but for audience and those at home to vote.

After a spirited round, it was time for the anxiously anticipated $20,000 Battle Round. Dustville Dancers took on Cameron Skankaz, who, though doing energetic routines, were outclassed by Dustville's acrobatic moves.

Up next was crowd favourite, Classic Dancers, against Fearless Dancers. Fearless did their best, but that was not good enough for the judges who declared it a 'Classic win'.

Dustville and Classic Dancers then went head to head. As the seconds wound down, Classic pulled out one last stop by throwing one of their members in the air. That was enough to secure them the challenge win.

The winning streak clearly continued as host Jenny Jenny also declared them as the overall winners of the competition, Cameron Skankas were second, Fearless third and Dustville in fourth position.

Classic Dancers walked away with more than $2 million in cash and prizes. The event's entertainment package included performances from Stein, Kalado, Voicemail and Demarco, who had the audience in a frenzy.
