Team Division Winners

1st Place: Elektrolytes

After winning second place last year at WODAZ17, Elektrolytes came back with an impeccable performance, earning a very well-deserved first place this year!

One of the largest teams competing this far, each one of its multiple members displayed a flawless synchronization of movements, making the crowd go crazy for a full four-minute long routine. Their fun choice of music remix gave off their hip hop routine an assertive and energetic vibe. This is indeed a very promising team!

2nd Place: United Prospects

This team also won Best Theme at #WODAZ18 this year. Watch them dominate the dance floor with their subtly controlled movements.

3rd Place: Tequila Movement

Winning third place this year, Tequila Movement had a lot to offer with their creative use of bandannas as props. The team also won Crowd Favorite and Best Costume!
