Over 50 of the best hip-hop dance groups from all over the country are anticipated to take center stage at the 2017 World of Dance Philippines Qualifier powered by Sony Philippines EXTRA BASS, happening tomorrow at the UP Theater in Quezon City.

A global media company, World of Dance (WOD) stages global competitions and operates a multichannel network on YouTube. Starting in 2008 in California, WOD is now the largest urban street dance competition franchise in the world. Sony Philippines with its heart-pounding, dance music-oriented EXTRA BASS personal audio series is bringing this year’s showdown to the Philippines.

"The team and I are extremely excited for World of Dance PH 2017. Not only are we heading strong on our third year, but we also are partnered up with a truly respected and innovative brand in the tech industry, Sony Extra Bass! Music and dance will always be inseparable, and World of Dance PH can best showcase both the great quality of Sony's products and the world-class talent of Filipino dancers. We’re inviting everyone to join us on March 4 at the UP Theater!” said Vimi Rivera, Director of World of Dance Philippines.

Consisting of a youth and an upper division, last year’s competition was topped by Alliance and Addlib as winners respectively. This year, WOD Philippines has invited Melvin Timtim and Rock*well, two of the hottest dance acts to date, to join the festivities.

 “When it comes to people’s love for music and dance, Sony has always made sure that our products enhance not only the performance but also the overall experience of our customers. EXTRA BASS is perfectly tailored towards hard-hitting and scene-stealing dancing, which is why we are more than excited to be a part of this year’s World of Dance Philippines Qualifiers,” said Nobuyoshi Otake, President and Managing Director, Sony Philippines.

Interested parties who want to witness the competition must buy tickets for PhP 500. Doors will open at 1:30PM.
