As the Street Dance of China Season 3 wrapped up for the season, it was ultimately Yang Kai from the Dance Captain Wang Yibo’s team who took control of the ultimate stage.
As though watching the full three-hour dance battle between the four Street Dance teams haven’t been tough enough, the cast on the Street Dance of China 3 spent over 7 hours filming for the finale episode.
Yang Kai’s hard-earned victory came sitting through 3 long matches which involved 18 rounds of dancing. In each round, every dance stood on the elevated platform in front of a mass audience where they attempted to own the stage with their dance moves.

As the first B-boy dancer to stand on the final stage in three seasons of the show, Yang Kai passionately declared: “On this stage, I represent Breaking (or breakdancing/b-boying) on behalf of China!”
His final opponent on the other side of the stage, Jiang De Chao (otherwise known as “Xiao Chao”) from Dance Captain Jackson Wang’s team, is the youngest player in the three-season championship and runner-up competition stage. Though he was viewed as the “dark horse” for most parts of the show, he took on the challenge of battling the older dancer fearlessly.
In the battle of the century between the older and younger generation, Yang Kai accumulated three points in a row with the high-energy performance of rounds of big moves to ultimately emerge as the champion of Street Dance of China 3!
At the same time, he made history as the first dancer in the history of the show to win grand champion with his breaking dance style!

While the final dance showdown was an exciting one to watch, the road to the championship round was also similarly full of twists and turns.
In the first round of Qi Wu’s showdown, Xiaochao’s emotions exploded and interpreted his mental journey, and received unanimous approval from all the captains. Yi Yang Qianxi couldn’t help but confess that Xiao Chao’s display of his dancing prowess had been “too ruthless”.
Yang Kai also surprised the crowd with his transformation into “Nezha”, as he created a lively atmosphere with his break dancing. His perfect performance matched the words of Captain Wang Yibo, who said that it was the “most confident, proudest and maddest” performance of the night.
In the battle among the top 4 one of the highlights also included the match between Yang Kai and Bouboo, who are both from Captain Wang Yibo’s dance time. Their dance battle was extremely exciting to watch, and some even felt that the showdown was extremely brutal, since the DJs played Wang Yibo’s song, “No Feeling” to eliminate participants from his own team that round. Ultimately, Yang Kai successfully advanced into the championship round, while Xiao Chao defeated Xiao Zhibin by a massive margin in what was described as a “very superior” dance performance showcase!

Wallace Chung’s team collectively also created a party themed dance performance alternative between a mixture of salt, sweet and sexy vibes. The passionate dance performance of the team moved people, as he mentioned that he had “found the happiness that he felt from the first time he decided to continue dancing all over again.”
Never one to disappoint, Lay Zhang once again created his dance choreography and chose his music carefully to infuse distinctly Chinese style melodies into his performance. With the Guqin as one of the instruments in the background, he also incorporated the red silk in his dance choreography. Indeed the performance captured Lay Zhang’s profound intents when he created the performance: “I want to express the pride is in our bones and blood through the art of dancing!
