On the 8th of September, the day every citizen in IMU had been waiting for, the official opening of IMU Cup 2014 took place. IMU Cup 2014 started off gracefully with its very first event that is the Dance Showdown. The emcee for this event was Khemerin Eng.
There are 6 houses in total – Pegasus, Taurus, Phoenix, Draco, Hydra and Griffin. All 6 teams worked hard and presented a very entertaining show for the citizens of IMU. Blood, sweat and pain are the 3 things a team must sacrifice in order to win. But in this case, the teams put an extra effort in coming up with the most creative steps as well in order to capture the interest of the onlookers and the judges of course.
The dancers portrayed many genres of dance such as hip-hop, contemporary, and Latin. The Griffin team stole the show with their cloying and dizzying hip-hop steps with a dash of Latin dance thrown in to heat up the atrium. The gentlemen danced alongside the beautiful ladies, not missing a beat at all and ultimately setting fire to the dance floor. The choreography was just mind blowing, and the songs were obviously hand-picked as they were very catchy yet simple.

As entertaining as the show was it had to come to an end, with Griffin walking away as Champions. Pegasus bagged the second place as Taurus clenched the third place. The other teams may not have won the dance showdown, but they certainly have won our hearts!
