The La Salle Dance Company-Street on Saturday claimed the UAAP season 81 streetdance competition title, defeating rival FEU Street Alliance.

The La Salle team returned to the summit thanks to its Queen-inspired routine, that incorporated classics such as "We Will Rock You" and "Another Bites the Dust," to seal a record fourth crown.

FEU, which derailed La Salle's bid for back-to-back championships last year, finished a close second, scoring 85 points, a point and a half short of the winning score of 86.5 points.

This win meant that La Salle has now broken its deadlock with the UP Streetdance Club for the most number of streetdance titles.
