Breaking Beats the Streets

Heads up, Hip Hop nation and sports enthusiasts! Breaking, the electrifying dance style that took root on the streets, is about to explode onto the biggest stage in sports: the 2024 Paris Olympics.

For the first time ever, B-Boys and B-Girls will be battling it out for gold medals, a monumental step for breaking and a guaranteed spectacle for global audiences.

What to expect:

One-on-One Battles

Imagine a cypher (a breakdancing circle) on steroids. Athletes go head-to-head, showcasing their skills in intense duels.

Move Mastery

Expect a mind-blowing display of classic breaking moves – windmills, headspins, power moves, freezes – all judged on creativity, musicality, execution, difficulty, and overall performance.


Think high-octane energy, pulsating beats, fierce competition, and a whole lot of raw hip hop spirit.

Why this matters:

Breaking's inclusion in the Olympics is a major win for the art form. It elevates breaking beyond street dance, showcasing it as a demanding sport requiring athleticism, artistry, and relentless dedication.

Catching the Action:

The competition will take place on August 9 and 10, 2024. NBC will air the event live. For more information, visit https://olympics.com/en/paris-2024/sports/breaking on the Olympics website:
