Daaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. That ish was soooooooooooooooooooo sick. Guy doing Jhummar in the front right was amazing (with the ankle brace). Whole routine was sick. Props to you guys on a well deserved first place. ;D
Props to HPD for a solid performance. Live segment was clean and Jhummer segment was longer than usual but well executed. I agree with Billy Bob, dancer in the pink vest (w/ankle brace) was superb. Pace of the routine was very comfortable and song selection decent. Besides the moving formation at 7:50, overall this routine was simple yet just goes to show that a group of skilled dancers can win 1st with a basic traditional routine.
The uniformity of their team style also stands out (leg movements and heads). Where is this team based?
Also, does this mark the comeback of half-live & half-CD routines?
Guys this is what I've been waiting to see. It's so easy to understand why they destroyed their competition. I'll admit, I was wrong to underestimate you guys!
All of your dancers are phenomenal, and I think you guys are so clean and uniform in execution which ensured your win.
Dhamaal with the opening live segment = Sick
Mela at the end = the factor that sets you apart from all the other similar teams.
This team is very distinguishable. I loved how you guys used longer cuts of fewer songs too, that's different too. One thing that really hurt you guys was the lack of formations and transitions into those formations. I understand you were going for a very traditional routine and all your formations were standard traditional (staggered, V, circle), but it doesn't hurt to mix it up a bit. Seeing the Pink and Light green guys in the front was amazing, but your other jori's are talented too, and they should come up to the stage more.
That was impressive - from start to finish. The color coordination was really exceptional and all your dancers looked strong and proud. I think the parts that wowed me the most were the spins; very well executed. This is definetly one of the best routines I've watched in a long time.
The only thing I might do is come up with a simpler ending formation, as it could be the cap to a really clean performance. Great job overall
so far i would say that this is their best perfomance ever. This is what i would like to let the teams know hpd used simple traditional moves they dn't overdo anything. their performance was clean. at the comp. being clean is one of the most important thing. but hpd were clean fast and graceful. i guess they need to work on their formations a bit more but overall awsome routine
