GROUP “ADL” WINS ‘LOCK DA STAGE’ CONTEST AT ISRAEL LOVELL FOUNDATION
Street dancers Adrenalin (ADL) are the proud winners of the first ever Lock Da Stage three on three Dance competition. After convincing wins at the preliminary and semi-final stages, the group delivered a first-rate performance that earned it the grand prize of $1,500.
Hundreds of dance fans packed the Israel Lovell Foundation last Sunday to see the showdown between finalists ADL and the popular “passa passa” group Mystery Life Dancers. Both groups were judged on presentation, technique, versatility, improvisation, creativity, choreography and crowd response. ADL scored major points in all categories with Mystery Life following very closely behind. Although not gaining the top spot, Mystery Life still walked away with the trophy for the most dedicated group.
Organised by Marita Greenidge of marketing consulting firm Crimson-Jade Consulting Inc., Lock Da Stage was designed to give young dancers a platform to display their creativity and skills. Structured as a three-round clash, the first two rounds saw dancers performing to choreographed pieces while the final round required dancers to showcase their versatility by performing to unfamiliar “wild card” pieces randomly selected by the DJ.
The competition represented the first major win for ADL who practised many long hours to deliver a very strong performance. The Facebook pages of Lock Da Stage and Pon Di Scene TV feature photos and video of the event.
