OUCH 2012

One of the reasons why I have been super busy over the past two months has been because of dance practices with my Urban Hip Hop Union (UHHU) dance team, preparing for the Ontario University Competition of Hip-Hop (OUCH). The big competition took place on Nov. 17 at the John Bassett Theatre inside the Metro Toronto Convention Centre - This was the first time it was held downtown, so we were incredibly lucky to be on our home turf!

All semester, we'd been practicing like crazy and we went into the competition full of energy and excitement. The event was hosted by Lenny Len and judged by Jon 'Drops' Reid (Supernaturalz Crew), Kojo 'Tuch' Mayne (Do Dat Entertainment) and Jungle (Do Dat Entertainment). Ryerson was among a total of 15 schools competing.

Aren't we cute?

Although we didn't place in the top 3, it was honestly such an amazing experience. We gave it our best shot and I couldn't have asked for a better day - we are so proud of our performance.
Here's a video of it I found on YouTube:

Here were the official results:

Tied for 3rd place:

Until next year!
