They plan to be a competitive dance crew that will not just compete but to be able to interact and be recognized as one of the growing school dance crews around the metro. Interacting with some of the studio’s current dance teams, Don Bosco Extreme Unit has realized that it’s not always about winning but it’s the passion that should drive them.

Lourdes School of Mandaluyong

Ground Zero

2006 – present

Started just about the same time when DB Extreme Unit was established, Ground Zero had the same reasons as well. Inspired by joining Orange Dance Studio’s Summer Funshops, its founders were of loyal Orange students that had the idea of bringing the same passion and craft they learned at ODS to their Alma Mater. The name Ground Zero was not actually the immediate name of this group, they actually had an original name called Pax Et Bonum Dance Troupe, that majority of its members wanted to change. Ground Zero was the final name because as they describe it, their team is just starting but they are willing to improve.

Sayawatha

1998 – 2001

Derived from the word “Sayaw ng Diwatha”. Sayawatha was the original High School team trained by Mrs. Jen Real-Lim even before ODS was established. Handled from 1998-2001, Sayawatha was an anticipated team during their time under Mrs. Jen. They were known to compete using the genre of hip-hop / streetdance during the time wherein dance competitions and groups were into Jazz and Modern Ballet. With Mrs. Jen’s help, the team won many championships and titles attached under their belt, but for unforeseen circumstances Mrs. Jen resigned as their official choreographer in 2001. Until now, original members of this group are loyal ODS members and some are already part of ODS Core.

A dance group consisting of all female members, St. Paul Pasig – Street was a powerhouse team who bagged a lot of victories while under Orange Dance Studio. Unfortunately, SPCP Street changed its name to Terpsichore when they were handled by a different choreographer who was a friend of Dexter and Jen Lim. Even though they are not an active team handled by the studio many of its members are still actively training under Orange Dance Studio through its annual summer funshop and regular workshops.

Unfortunately in 2005, Dancestream started to be inactive in ODS due to lack of members in their group. Up to this date some of their members that graduated are still active and are now part of different college teams handled by the studio, while others continue their passion for dance in the annual summer funshops and regular workshops that the studio conduct all year round.

Cadence Uprockin’ Crew

2005 – present

Formed in 2005, De La Salle Cadence Uprockin’ Crew was originally created to continue the previous La Salle Synergy that was also handled by Orange. Having in mind that it was supposed to be the same team, Cadence is more considered as a different entity & not just a re-badging of the old Synergy. Since its inception, Cadence has often been intrigued by other dance crews in DLSU sometimes forced not to join inter-school competitions, but it never stopped this team to prove their potential inside & outside campus. Cadence serves as a venue for ODS people enrolled in DLSU to continue their passion & show their loyalty and support to Orange.

They’ve got character, power and skills… They’re winners and here to stay. As science has evolved and improves, this powerful team has emerged as one of the teams to beat. Champions in their own league, as they have shared their lives with ODS, their potentials have been discovered and have been fully developed.

Considered as one of Orange Dance Studio’s best trained teams, and also one of the first teams taught when the studio was just a year old in New Manila. UP Manila Indayog Dance Varsity started under Orange Dance Studio in 2002, but for some unexpected circumstance they left in 2006. Due to the fact that most of the original members of the said group who trained under the studio graduated and only a few were left to make them stay. Although there was a change of heart within the group, the original Indayog members who started under Orange still remains loyal and undoubtedly continue their support for the studio.
