The annual UAAP Cheerdance Competition (CDC) is held at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines

The UAAP Cheerdance Competition is an annual one-day event of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines for cheerleading. From 1995 to 1997 it was sponsored by Jollibee. It has been sponsored by Nestlé Ice Cream from 1998 to 2005. The 2006 season had no major sponsorship. In 2007, it was sponsored by Samsung Mobile.

Studio 23 received the right to televise the UAAP Men's Basketball. Along with it came the coverage rights of the annual UAAP Cheerdance Competition. The hosts of the event usually start with an audience roll call. After each participating university's name is called, the audience from that school chants their most popular cheer along with their official drummers. However, the dancers of their respective pep squads are not yet shown to the audience and televiewers until their performance. The sequence of the roll call are random and solely the discretion of the hosts or producers. The sequence of the performance are determined by drawing of lots prior the competition.{{fix-{{#switch:{{{style}}} |box|page=box |line|section=line |inline|#default=inline}} |{{#if:|image=}} |{{#if:|size=}} |{{#if:WikiPilipinas:Citing sources|link=WikiPilipinas:Citing sources}} |{{#if:noprint Template-Fact|class=noprint Template-Fact}} |{{#if:This claim needs references to reliable sources|title=This claim needs references to reliable sources}} |{{#if:|pre-text=}} |{{#if:citation needed|text=citation needed}} |{{#if:|post-text=}} |{{#if:|special=}} |{{#if:September 2007|date=September 2007}} |cat= |{{#if:|cat-date=}}}}

The UAAP Cheerdance Competition (and the NCAA Cheerdance Competition) has a different approach as opposed to other cheerleading competitions (e.g. NCC Philippines). Many has used the term "Cheerdance" to name a cheerleading competition because of the popularity of the UAAP and NCAA Cheerdance Competitions, which have a live television coverage and nationwide telecast. However, as the name suggests, "Cheerdance" is a combination of cheerleading and dancing. Thus, the criteria for Cheerdance is composed, in large part, of points for choreography and synchronization. The rules set criteria to judge every squad's performance and put allowable deductions afterwards. It also sets certain number of stunts required for the squads to perform.

Cheerleading competitions, on the other hand, follow international standards. Each squad needs to earn points by executing stunts. Points given are based largely on the difficulty of a stunt. The criteria used in NCC Philippines is composed of basic elements, stunts, tosses, pyramids and tumblings. Each has technical, difficulty and overall effect considerations. Judges can also impose penalties to squads who have violated the rules or have used illegal skills in their routines.

Criteria

The 2007 criteria for judging consist of the following:

  • Choreography (50 pts)
  • Synchronization (30 pts)
  • Audience Audibility (10 pts)
  • Costume (10 pts)

The 2004 criteria for judging consist of the following:

  • Choreography (40 pts)
  • Synchronization (25 pts)
  • Audience Audibility (10 pts)
  • Costume (5 pts)
  • Nestlé Non-Stop Cheer (20 pts)

The 2002 criteria<ref name="Cheerdance 2002"/> for judging consist of the following:

  • Choreography (40 pts)
  • Creativity and Degree of Difficulty (25 pts)
  • Transition and Coordination, Audibility/Volume of Cheer (10 pts)

UST - UP rivalry

Being consistently in the top 3 of the competition and the only universities winning the title (where all UAAP-member schools are present to compete), University of Santo Tomas and University of the Philippines were caught in a rivalry through its official cheerdance teams: UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe and UP Pep Squad.

UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe won the competition since the inception of cheerdance in 1995 until 1997. In 1998 UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe did not join the competition(a). The year 1999 saw the rivalry between these two squads. That time, UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe went back to take the Cheerdance title after a year of absence. However, the dance troupe only finished second while the UP Pep Squad was declared champion. On year 2001, UP Pep Squad was able to match the record of UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe's three consecutive winnings.<ref name="Navarra">Ruth L. Navarra (2007-09-17), "Champions of Cheer", Philippine Daily Inquirer. Retrieved 17 September 2007.</ref> On 2002, UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe was able to regain the title while UP Pep Squad finished third. In the next three years, UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe won first place with UP Pep Squad as their runner-up. On 2006, UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe broke its own record and had their eighth title via five-peat; UP Pep Squad finished third place.<ref name="Navarra"/> On 2007, UP Pep Squad won back the title.<ref name="GMA"/>

}}</ref>. The Diliman-based groups (UP) make criticisms that the España-based dance troupe (UST) play safe in their annual routine. UP fans argue that the UP Pep Squad has been known for their elaborately executed pyramids and lifts, while UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe simply lacks difficulty in their stunts. UST fans answer that the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe excels in execution, dance and motion techniques, transitions, formations or use of floor, and synchronization or timing. Critics of the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe dares the latter to compete in other cheerleading competitions like the NCC Philippines.{{fix-{{#switch:{{{style}}} |box|page=box |line|section=line |inline|#default=inline}} |{{#if:|image=}} |{{#if:|size=}} |{{#if:WikiPilipinas:Citing sources|link=WikiPilipinas:Citing sources}} |{{#if:noprint Template-Fact|class=noprint Template-Fact}} |{{#if:This claim needs references to reliable sources|title=This claim needs references to reliable sources}} |{{#if:|pre-text=}} |{{#if:citation needed|text=citation needed}} |{{#if:|post-text=}} |{{#if:|special=}} |{{#if:September 2007|date=September 2007}} |cat= |{{#if:|cat-date=}}}} However, UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe claims to focus on their commitments in University of Santo Tomas as the university's official dance troupe and perform in different university functions and programs. {{fix-{{#switch:{{{style}}} |box|page=box |line|section=line |inline|#default=inline}} |{{#if:|image=}} |{{#if:|size=}} |{{#if:WikiPilipinas:Citing sources|link=WikiPilipinas:Citing sources}} |{{#if:noprint Template-Fact|class=noprint Template-Fact}} |{{#if:This claim needs references to reliable sources|title=This claim needs references to reliable sources}} |{{#if:|pre-text=}} |{{#if:citation needed|text=citation needed}} |{{#if:|post-text=}} |{{#if:|special=}} |{{#if:September 2007|date=September 2007}} |cat= |{{#if:|cat-date=}}}}

Based on the recorded scores, the closest fight between these universities was on year 2005 with a 0.22 point difference and the largest gap was on 2001 with a difference of 4.90 points.

UP's popular cheer is "Uh...! Nibersidad ng Pilipinas" while UST's is "Go USTe". Usually held in Araneta Coliseum, the UP crowd clap their hands in full swing while chanting their cheer. On the other hand, UST crowd waves their yellow "hotdog" balloons in circular motion while cheering.

  1. The panel of judges is composed of representatives from each participating university, representatives (usually three) from the major sponsor, and a technical judge. Although the 2007 edition was sponsored by Samsung Mobile, there was no representation from them.
  2. From 1998 to 2005, all teams were required to perform a special Nestlé Cheer. This cheer was included in the criteria for judging and comprised 20% of their scores. It was judged exclusively by the representatives of Nestlé except in 2005, where each of the school representatives also gave a score.
  3. In 2005, a judge was not allowed to give a score for the school he represents.
  4. The highest and lowest scores garnered by each team are omitted and the remaining scores are averaged. This rule was removed in 2005 but restored the following year.
  5. The year 2005 saw critical changes in the rules for judging. For the first time, school representatives were not allowed to give scores for their own school, causing the omitting of highest score unnecessary and not applied. Each school representative was also allowed to give a score for Nestlé cheer for the first time. Since a judge may give conflicting scores between a squad's school cheer and Nestlé cheer (i.e. a high score for school cheer and a low score for Nestlé cheer or vice versa), omitting of the lowest score became impossible to apply, therefore this rule was removed.
  6. The criteria usually include choreography, synchronization, costume, audience participation, and overall impact.
  7. The rules usually require teams to perform a number of tosses, jumps, lifts, and pyramids (usually three, with one being a 3-high). Additional pyramids are credited for difficulty. Teams which are not able to execute the minimum required number of pyramids receive point deductions.
