Break dancing is one of four additional sports expected to be included at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris along with surfing, sport climbing and skateboarding.
Break dancing is an acrobatic style of street dance typically set to hip-hop or funk music and we can't wait to witness the burst of energy that comes with this dance form.
