If you were dancing with props, you were getting props. That was the theme of Freestyle Takeover’s most recent competition held this past weekend at MAGWest, the West Coast expansion of MAGFest (Music and Gaming Festival).
We held a two-round improv freestyle tournament to determine who had the most creativity and charisma when faced with a random song. The first twist: It was on a DDR 4th Mix Plus machine, a mix that hasn’t seen the light of day in Northern California in over a decade. The second twist: Each competitor was randomly assigned a physical prop to use in conjunction with their first round performance. The result? The crowd, the judges, and the Twitch audience were treated to plenty of clever acts on stage!
In the final round, the physical props were shooed away but the energy was turned up to 11. Despite the competitors being bound to a random song, they still let loose and left it all on the dance pads. This is not some phrase that we throw around lightly; the top 3 finishers finished within a point of each other on the judges’ scorecards!
With that said, here are the full results below!
