    On Sunday, Lucky Aces, composed of Filipino-Canadian dancers Reyond “Lucky” Ancheta and Andree Camille “AC” Bonifacio, was proclaimed the winner of “Dance Kids.”

    The fleet-flooted duo won P2 million, a house and lot, a trip with the family to Hong Kong Disneyland, a shopping spree worth P300, 000, and a Star Magic contract.

    Many Filipinos were glued to their television sets to watch a pair of nimble young dancers from Canada become the first ever grand champion of “Dance Kids.”

    The Filipino-Canadian duo received 42.69% of the votes, beating dubstep dancer Dhao Mac (29.62%) and dance sport duo Step Kids (27.69%).
    AC, who teared up after they were announced the winner, said, “It feels amazing because we’ve always been dreaming to be recognized here in the Philippines. And now we have some of our best friends in ‘Dance Kids.’ It’s an amazing feeling.”
    “We’re just so happy after all these performances for ‘Dance Kids,’ this was the last one, all this hard work. We’re just super happy,” shared Lucky.

    For their final performance, Lucky Aces took the stage with one of the show’s Dance Masters, Georcelle Dapat-Sy, and Enrique Gil on the first night of the Final Showdown last Saturday (Feb 6), and with hiphop group A-Team on Sunday.

    Second placer Dhao Mac, meanwhile, teamed up with Vhong Navarro and Rayver Cruz. Step Kids, on the other hand, performed with Andy Alviz and Maja Salvador.

    Dhao Mac and Step Kids both received P100,000 each.
    The duo are from Vancouver, Canada and became  more famous when they were invited and  appeared on Ellen’s Show. They have joined different competitions in BC and international ones and won. Their mentor here in Vancouver is Mr. Cesar Tantoco. (abs-cbn/starmometer)
