Wazzup yall!!.. Did you all know that while the Philippines' Champ Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao from General Santos City was fighting over Oscar dela Hoya in Las Vegas, USA, another group of “generals” was also having their fight by their own battlegrounds in Sydney, Australia and later taking home the Silver for the country?

The Exquizyth Dancers, have gone through a lot of competitions around the country and achieved the Champion title at the Groove Manila that gives them the opportunity to represent the Philippines the Philippines at 5th World Supremacy Battlegrounds (Hip-Hop Dance Competition) at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre in Sydney, Australia.

All 16 individuals including their manager Richie Mulders fly to Sydney 2 days before the competition proper were mobbed by fellow Filipinos and half Australians anywhere they went. The GenSan's hip-hop performers were never out of support by the Pinoys out there through having their presence with never-ending cheers throughout the competition.

History's the past but His-Story will last!

Hey guys! Do you know who they are? Well, every hiphop dance crew know them. Coz they're the 2006 and 2008 World Hip-Hop Dance Champions! It's the Philippine Allstars, the Philippines' most promising hiphop dance crew of the country and the whole world. Let's know more about them.!!!

The Philippine Allstars was started in 2005 by twelve friends who came from different backgrounds, but wanted to collectively represent their country in the World Hip-Hop Championships held in the US. That year after taking first in the Maximum Groovity II, National Hip-Hop Open, they proudly placed 6th in the World. In 2006, Allstars put the Philippines on the map of Hip-hop dance in becoming the first Asian country to win back-to-back World Gold titles in the International Hip-hop Open d’Ítalia in Turin, Italy and in the World Hip-Hop Dance Championships in Los Angeles, California. The next year, the group took Bronze in the same competition and also won Team of the Year from V.Ent’s First Annual Dance Awards. Now in 2008, they came back strong again and took Gold in the World Hip-Hop Dance Championships held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

But past the medals, awards, and their resume, this group stands for so much more than winning. To them, winning is only a device for them to get seen, heard, and accomplish their true goals.
