The UP Runggiyan is a university based, socio-civic, student organization that has been existing for 35 years and has been known for its many events that help the studentry and the community.In the year 2005, around November, the members of the organization have initially thought about creating an event that could generate funds and that was through a disco event of some sort. Later on, the members thought about organizing a dance contest which they named Dance Wars. Not only did it help the youth especially those aspiring dancers, it also became an income generating event which helped the organization in its projects.The dance competition has evolved over the years but it still has the same goal: To empower the youth and enhance their talents, and to generate enough funds to eventually be able to help the community through its many projects all throughout the year. Soon enough, Dance Wars became a popular and very much looked-forward to, yearly event for dancers specifically in the hip hop genre, and also for dance enthusiasts.
