BREAKING ASSOCIATION MALMÖ
WHAT IS BREAKING?
Breaking, also known as breakdance, is a style of street dance that originated in the Bronx, New York City during the early 1970s.
Breaking is one of the four original elements of hip-hop culture, alongside DJing, MCing (rapping), and graffiti art. The culture emerged from the Bronx during a time of social and economic struggle and provided a positive creative outlet for young people in the community.
Breaking involves a combination of acrobatic and gymnastic movements, such as spins, flips, and freezes, which are performed to the beat of hip-hop, funk, and breakbeat music.
The dance style has also influenced other styles of dance and music, and remains an important part of hip-hop culture to this day.
WHO IS BAM?
BAM is a non-profit organization founded in February 2019 with the purpose of promoting cultural and urban art forms, particularly within the positive influence of hip-hop culture. We’re based in Malmö and organize workshops, practices, competitions, and jams for the dancers in Malmö.
Our vision is to create learning and meaningful contexts that promote well-being and self-esteem, especially among young people. We also strive to enhance community, integration, and inclusivity while providing tools to realize ideas and to increase accessibility to breaking.
