Wuxi named host of 2024 World Youth Breaking Championships 20/12/2023

Wuxi 2024 World Youth Breaking Championships The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) is excited to announce that the 2024 World Youth Breaking Championships will take place in Liangxi, Wuxi, China on 28-29 September.

The city in Eastern China was recently granted the honour of hosting the event by the WDSF Presidium.

“As we gear up for Breaking’s debut at the Olympic Games Paris 2024, we also remain steadfastly committed to the future development of the discipline around the world. Our World Youth Breaking Championships represent the pinnacle of these efforts,” said WDSF President Shawn Tay.

“Elite young b-boys and b-girls looking to compete against the best of the best will be aiming to qualify for these championships, and Liangxi in Wuxi, with all of its world-class facilities, is the perfect host for this prestigious competition, which will precede qualifying events for the Youth Olympic Games 2026 that will begin in 2025.”

The Wuxi World Youth Breaking Championships will also mark the beginning of a new global ranking system for b-boys and b-girls post Paris 2024. Further details on the ranking system and qualification process for the Championships will be communicated in the new year.

Wuxi (pronounced woo-shee) is located about an hour-and-a-half drive from Shanghai. The city of 7.5 million inhabitants has long been known as hub of cultural and artistic activity and is now pursuing its goal of becoming a major player in the sports world as well.

An economic powerhouse in China, Wuxi is home to a large number of elite sports and entertainment venues. Wuxi hosted a WDSF GrandSlam Series event (Latin and Standard) this July, while also organizing the first annual WDSF Asian DanceSport Festival.

The WDSF events were among an estimated 100 sports events hosted in Wuxi this year alone, according to the Wuxi municipal bureau of sports. Other events have included the World Taekwondo Grand Slam Champions Series, the Wuxi Marathon, and competitions in aquatics, basketball, chess, and table tennis, to name a few.

As the global governing body for all DanceSport disciplines worldwide, the WDSF works daily to develop Breaking at all levels, together with our National Member Bodies.
