Abstract: Breaking, hip-hop culture's oldest known dance, is set to make its Olympic debut at the 2024 Paris Summer Games. Despite Singapore’s bronze medal achievement at the 2019 SEA Games Breaking Men’s Single, the country’s competitive breaking scene is still a far cry from powerhouses in Asia like Japan and Korea. But this may change as local breakers are taking it into their hands to uplift the community. They set out to break norms and stereotypes – from developing talents as young as seven years old, proving that breaking is no longer a “boys-only” form of expression, to using the art form to empower youth-at-risk.
