Breaking (Media named: Break Dancing) dates back to the 1980s in the UK and the 1970s in America. It is a sport, dance and culture that was birthed in the most deprived areas of the Bronx in New York City.

Breaking was accepted into the 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It proved to be one of the most exciting and well-attended sports, gaining worldwide coverage. The successes supported its acceptance and debut in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, due to the high amount of Breakers in France and the growing number of Breaking athletes across the world.

Our organisation predominantly archives the Breaking History for Merseyside, Cheshire and West Lancashire areas of the UK from the 1980s onwards.

We do have plans to expand our reach with investment to increase our reach to the North West of England.
