As the grand champ, the DanSSA took home a total of P160,000 in cash prize, P10,000 for emerging from the semi-finals, P100,000 for winning the grand showdown, and another P50,000 for winning the Co-Ed division, where the crew beat Bulihan National High School and last year’s grand champ Colegio San Agustin.
Xavier School’s Dance X came in second place, while School of the Holy Spirit’s Aglaia placed third. Both troupes took home P50,000 each as winners in their respective divisions plus another P10,000 each for pulling through the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, out of the body movers from the nine semi-finalists, Ella Jacob of the Dominican College Dance Troupe garnered a total of 29,641 online votes, hailing her as the MYX Supreme Mover. This is the second consecutive year of Dominican College reign in the MYX Supreme Mover title.
