The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) will organise an online Breaking Congress in June to provide important information to all interested b-boys and b-girls in the lead-up to Breaking’s Olympic debut at Paris 2024.

The free-of-charge Congress will take place over three days – the 15th, 17th and 19th of June – and feature workshops led by experts from the Breaking community. Topics will range from how to meet the requirements of the Olympic scoring system to the historic context of moves and order of progression.

The six lecturers for the Congress are: Storm (Germany), Renegade (UK), Nemesis (USA), Focus (Finland), Kareem (USA), and Roxy (UK).

1pm to 3:15pm (CET) – Lecturers: Storm (Germany) & Renegade (UK)

The Congress is also an opportunity for local Breaking communities to strengthen ties with their WDSF National Member Bodies (NMBs) and vice versa. Interested breakers are encouraged to contact their NMBs for sign-up information and other details.

“Organising successful Breaking battles at the Olympic Games remains our top priority,” said WDSF President Shawn Tay. “And to do so will require excellent teamwork between the WDSF and the Breaking community, so we hope all breakers, inside and outside of the WDSF, will take the opportunity to join the Congress as we continue together on the road to Paris 2024.”

A similar Congress for Standard and Latin dancers will be held on 23rd and 25th June.
