Paulinians from various departments showcased their spectacular grooves in one of the most-awaited events: Out to Groove Street Dance Competition. The dance competition was held on January 21, 2020, at the SPU Manila quadrangle as a kick-start activity of University Week 2020.

The contest came in a new version, OTG 2.0, headed by the Paulinian Dance Troupe (PDT) with their moderator, Mr. Melvin Macuha. Four dance groups from the different colleges and Senior High School Department showed their amazing dance styles and skills as follows: ORIF dance group, representing the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences (CNAHS); Agsala Arriba, from the College of Business and Management (CBM); Mithi, hailing from the Senior High School Department and represented by their faculty; and Indak Mabaya, of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Education (CASE).
Aside from the contest pieces, special performances from PDT hyped up the audience, including renditions by alumni of the club, and the moderator himself, Mr. Melvin Macuha. Just before the competition officially ended, the different competing teams united as one to relive the tunes of Filipino Music in what the organizers coined as their “Unity Dance.”
After the intense battle, Indak Mabaya of CASE emerged victorious against the three other groups receiving 10, 000 pesos in cash and a plaque of recognition. The CBM won the 2nd place (runner-up), while the SHS Faculty came in for a 3rd place finish.
