Breakdancing: Now an Olympic Sport?

As our dance studio owners and instructors no doubt know, “breaking” is a form of competitive breakdancing. And now, Breaking will be an Olympic sport beginning with the 2024 Paris Olympics, according to BBC Sport.

Dance schools and break dancers themselves have been campaigning for breakdancing to become an Olympic sport for a long time. And now, their dream will be reality.

Competitors will be judged based on several aspects of breakdancing, including power moves, freezes, footwork, transitions, and tricks.

Predictably, there is already a USA Breaking Committee, and they are ready to make sure that US is ready to not just compete in 2024, but win the gold.
