“Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.” – This quotation by Martha Graham fits in perfectly with the experience explored at the CHEZA DANCE IDOLS Season 2 grand finale. The creativity, energy, team work, uniformity, audience applause and love for the dance game was the talk of the day.

Entering the Cheza grand finale were Batalo North dance group and High Five dancers , Shakers, Beat breakers, Archers, T.Y.G, The Oldies, Bazale dance group. The dancers all teamed up together to showcase a symbol of unity which was displayed in an opening dance called “Unity Dance” to show brotherhood and togetherness.

The nine crews started out with vigor and much energy as soon as the curtains were raised all dancing to the mega beat, street/creative dances as well as surprise beats forcing the audience to break into spontaneous applause for the unique and graceful dance displays.

The dancers lighted up the dance floor as all crews gave such a hard task for the judges (Cindy Sanyu, Kabenga Valentino and Hellen Berningham) to decide on which group to eliminate.
The battle for the grand prize went on as soon as the judges relieved off the first four groups bringing it to five in the race, Archers (central) settled for the 3rd spot with a surprise grand prize of (shs.250,000) after battling up with Beat breakers( Eastern) who came in 4th position and Bazale dance group(central) who were pushed to the 5th place.

The lines were drawn for the top 2 finalists to compete for the grand prize. 24/7 dancers (western) outmaneuvered after dominating in almost all fields, the team work as well as coherence in their body moves on the dance flow couldn’t help but rather bring the audience to endlessness ululations and thunder claps in support of them thus picking up more points from the judges to earn themselves a tittle of champions as well as a grand prize cash of one million shillings (shs.1,000,000)

The Northern based side, High Five dancers settled for the 2nd place with a surprise prize of five hundred thousand shillings (shs.500,000). The top 3 finalists will also feature in Uganda’s first ever dance film alongside Uganda’s best film actors by Pamoja Films, and also feature in the upcoming video of musician Cindy Sanyu as revealed in her interview.

The state minister for tourism, wild life and antiquities hon. Godfrey Kiwanda Suubi who was the guest speaker urged revelers to make best use of opportunities available in the country and to never never sit back waiting for the government.

The C.E.O of Brand Ambassordors Bismac Moses Amumpaire couldn’t hold his happiness but rather heart-fully thank everyone who supported to make Cheza dance idols a success, he called upon more partners to get on board in order to support the brand in uplifting the profile of dancers as well as harnessing their talent and mitigate juvenile misbehavior such as permissive sexual abuse and unemployment.
