Garuda from Indonesia soared to victory in the international board battle category, taking home the top prize.

The grand finale, an electrifying showcase of talent, unfolded at Lam Vien Square in the heart of Da Lat City, the provincial capital nestled in Vietnam’s picturesque Central Highlands region.

Twelve dance crews, a dynamic mix of local and international talent, graced the stage. Nine Vietnamese groups—Game On Crew, Kallus, Milky Way Crew, Str8 Up, Hanoi X Girls, Spacex, S4 Crew, Sud Crew, and Lyricíst—lit up the stage with their unique styles. They were joined by three exceptional international dance teams: Planet Lock from Thailand, Garuda from Indonesia, and Goat from Japan, each bringing their own distinct flair to the competition.

The event also played host to a stellar lineup of popular singers, including Anh Tu, Anh Thi, and Trung Hieu, alongside the captivating Thai music band De GIFT, who enthralled the audience with their performances.

A panel of esteemed judges, comprising choreographers Viet Max, Viet Thanh, and Rochka Noel, evaluated the performances based on their creative choreography and musicality.

Each of the 12 dance crews brought their A-game, delivering performances that wowed the audience and showcased their passion and talent. The competition wasn’t just about the prizes; it was a celebration of dance and a testament to the hard work and dedication of these artists.

Tran Diep My Dung, vice-secretary of the provincial committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and a member of the organizing board, shared the vision behind the event. “We aim to promote Lam Dong as a safe, friendly, and captivating destination,” she said. “We believe this competition will attract more visitors, both locally and internationally, to our beautiful highland locality.”
