Competition a crucial milestone for Europe’s top breakers on their journey to Paris 2024 Olympic Games
Breaking GB, under the auspices of DanceSport England (DSE), has been awarded the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) European Breaking Championships 2022, originally scheduled to take place in Russia, after a successful bid from Breaking GB and DSE, supported by Manchester City Council and UK Sport investment from The National Lottery.
The event, which will take place at Belle Vue Sports Village on 5-6 November, will see Europe’s top breakers bring their best moves and unique style to the dance floor. The audience are set to witness the most incredible action as the dancers go head-to-head, battling it out for the coveted European title.
Some of the top male and female Olympic contenders including some of this season’s major event winners will come together to compete to be crowned European Champion.
All of the dancers will display their raw talent and mind-blowing moves to impress the WDSF judging panel. With the highest tariff ranking points on offer, the competitors will leave it all on the floor as they look to build their qualification positions on the road to Paris 2024, where Breaking will feature on the Olympic programme for the first time.
With Manchester hosting the first ever Olympic pathway event for Breaking in the UK, this is an excellent opportunity to showcase this new sport to the British public and inspire the next generation of young people to get involved. Breaking’s unique position within music, culture and sport allows it to be widely accessible and appealing to a youth audience.
