The IOC Executive Board confirms Breaking for Paris 2024 event programme.
Dear Valued Members,
We are extremely pleased to let you know that the International Olympic Committee has just confirmed that Breaking has been added to the sports programme for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games!
While a long and sometimes challenging journey, the World DanceSport Federation has been honoured and privileged to have played our part, culminating in this historic moment for the organisation, for the DanceSport community, for all NMBs and for all dancers around the world.
One of our common goals now is to deliver the best possible Breaking event at Paris 2024. We will continue to work diligently and collaboratively with the Breaking community to ensure that DanceSport’s debut at Paris 2024 is an outstanding success featuring the very best athletes, exciting competition and a unique atmosphere. Indeed, for the Olympic Games and for events which serve to prepare and qualify for the Olympic Games, it is required to produce the highest possible standards, and, to ensure that we fully comply with all IOC requirements. WDSF will provide detailed guidance to ensure that Breaking events are correctly and consistently conducted by all member bodies.
Throughout our Olympic journey, the WDSF has forged close working relationships with the IOC and the Paris 2024 Organising Committee. This has provided you with potential access to important connections inside the Olympic Movement, including National Olympic Committees, other sports federations, governments and even sponsors, thereby greatly increasing the opportunity to secure support and assistance.
