Video qualification for Breaking at Buenos Aires launched

8 May 2017

BUENOS AIRES 2018: "Break-through" innovation has been redefined for the forthcoming Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games, with Friday's launch of the online qualification system for Breaking.

Introduced by the World Dance Sport Fesderation, it is the first time in Olympic history that video submissions are part of a qualification system.

Budding young b-boys and b-girls around the globe with a talent for breaking can now upload their own 45-second video and be one step closer to potentially qualifying for the Youth Olympic Games.

A group of expert judges, including some of the most renowned breakers on the international stage, will judge all the videos submitted and will provide individual feedback to each promising dancer, while top breaking DJs will provide the downloadable tracks to accompany the submissions.

The online qualification period opened on Friday 5 May and will run until 31 July 2017.

The Youth Olympic Games will take place between 6 and 18 October 2018 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
