Lebanon-based alternative dance group Mayyas has won the competition of famous reality TV talent show Arabs Got Talent, in its sixth season that ended Saturday.

The competition was tough between Mayyas and eight other talents, especially Duo Acrobat that gained wide appreciation.

"We will open a school for contemporary dance with the prize money," stated Nadim Sharfan, Mayyas group leader, during the show.

The MBC channel show, which was first broadcast in 2011, is an adaptation of an American format where talents in different types of performance, including singers, dancers, comedians, magicians and others, compete for fame through audience voting and jury judgments.

The current jury combines Lebanese media expert Ali Jaber, director of MBC, Lebanese star singer Najwa Karam, and Egyptian star actor Ahmed Helmi.
