BREAKIN’ AND IT’S DANCE ATHLETES
USA Breakin’ has programs for all ages and skill levels, from grassroots to professional. USA Breakin’ provides a positive learning experience for anyone interested in the dance sport and/or Hip-Hop culture.
At a grassroots level, USA Breakin’ has member studios throughout the country for dancers to begin their education. These educators are active in their local school systems and after school programs as well. Breakin’ is an incredible dance that develops strength, flexibility, agility, control, coordination, discipline, confidence and creativity. It promotes a healthy lifestyle, goal orientation and positive self-esteem. Through dedication and consistent practice, dancers can grow and improve to represent the United States. Other dance athletes may work toward performing professionally, becoming educators, coaching or even earning a college scholarship.
THE NATIONAL TEAM
The National Team will feature a designated number of dance athletes for Youth, Teen, and Adult members. The team will be selected through regional qualifiers and ultimately the National Championship event.
Through regional qualifiers, members will gain points based on where they place. At the National Champions, their performances will earn them more points. Their cumulative ranking will be evaluated along with other factors by a committee selected to form the National Team.
BREAKIN’ FOR USA
Breakin’ can be a fun activity for anyone, at any age or skill level. It has empowered countless youth to uplift themselves through creativity and hard work.
As an element of Hip-Hop culture, Breakin’ was born in the United States, originating in underserved neighborhoods in New York City during the early 1970’s. This history is important to our organization.
It is our conviction that Breakin’s place of origin should always be included in international events. Even as Hip-Hop and Breakin’ have spread across the globe, the legacy should always remain here in the United States. We are dedicated to creating opportunities for U.S. Breakers to represent this dance and culture we love on the international level.
