Breakdancing lessons and classes for kids

Find breakdancing and street dance lessons in Canada

Breakdance, similar to hip hop, is an urban dance that emerged mostly among African American youth in the mid-1970s. It remains a popular contemporary dance to this day, especially among young children and teenagers. In Canada, there are lots of breakdancing lessons to choose from, including in Toronto and Mississauga.

What will my child learn in a breakdancing lesson or class?

Breakdance, or b-boy, is one of the most athletic dance styles. Like hip hop and ballet, it involves a variety of moves requiring strength, skill, coordination, and dexterity. Some of the moves your child may learn including the following:

  • airflare,
  • float,
  • drop,
  • flare,
  • headspin,
  • kick,
  • spin,
  • windmill,

and

  • toprock.

Your child will be taught by a trained instructor. The instructor will go through the basics of the dance moves, step-by-step. And your child will learn these moves through practice and repetition, both on their own and in groups. Your child may also be encouraged to engage in freestyle breakdancing, to stir their creative juices.

How will breakdancing lessons benefit my child?

In short, in lots of ways. Your child will learn a number of different dance moves. In so doing, they’ll improve their breakdance skills as well as their overall dance abilities. And your child is sure to enjoy the rhythm and flair of breakdancing. They’ll also be able to showcase their skills to friends and family. Most of all, breakdance lessons are extremely fun!
