The Most Eye-Catching Uniforms From the UAAP Cheer Dance Competition 2017

It is that time of the year again. After being described as “one of the most difficult to judge contests in CDC history” by hosts Gretchen Ho,  Nikko Ramos and Angelique Manto, it was the Adamson Pep Squad that won the hearts of the crowd—a first for the school’s cheer dance history.

Aside from Adamson’s stellar performance, another thing caught our attention this year: the eye-catching uniforms. Here are some of our favorite details:

1. The Adamson Pep Squad took a trip down memory lane as their retro frames and OPM music reminded us of Manila in the ’80s. Perhaps, this is why it stole our hearts. Everything—from the details of their costumes to the heartfelt performance—made us feel warm and nostalgic.

2. With anime-esque makeup and Japanese umbrellas and outfits, the DLSU Animo Squad enchanted the crowd.

3. The NU Pep Squad brought us under the sea with their theme, which showcased outfits that resembled scales and the dreamy blue sea. Their performance was visually appealing, as every detail, from the makeup to the glistening scales on their uniforms, was taken into consideration.

4. The Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion stays true to their roots as they went for a Filipino festival themed performance with floral props. With the tendency of Filipinos to worship all things international, it was a good reminder to stay grounded.

5. Matching their fiery aura, the fringe detail and the pattern on the UA Pep Squad’s outfits playfully resemble fire. This was a good example of how an outfit this extra could be functional as well—the dancers even spelled “Rise” on the floor later on in the performance.
