FISHERS, Ind. — Breakdancing has been around for morning than 40 years. After a big blow-up in the '80s, it went underground in the '90s before gaining popularity again in recent years.
The dance style is so widespread now, it's set to debut as an Olympic sport at the 2024 Games in Paris.
31Svn Street Dance Academy in Fishers has been offering breakdancing classes for more than 10 years now. Owner Keegan Loye said the sport has never been more popular.
"Breaking is like the original street dance. It's the original hip-hop dance," Loye said. "It's the only dance form that's actually an element of hip-hop culture."
Loye said because of its history, it's only right that breakdancing is getting this kind of international recognition.
31Svn Street Dance Academy offers classes for kids as young as 5. According to the website, their oldest student is 50. For more details on classes and how to register, visit 31svn.com.
