Breakdancing: What a sport!

Breakdancing: What a sport!

Is it a dance?

Is it a sport?

Breakdancing or breaking is a form of street dance that has its origins in Bronx in New York.

Breakers, also called b-boys and b-girls, can move to anything from soul to jazz to hip hop dance music.

It’s cool, it’s acrobatic, it’s powerful and soon, it may be a category at the Olympics.

But it’s not the first funky event to enter the haloed international sporting competition.
