Such a hullabaloo….oops wrong dance…. as the folks hosting the Paris 2024 Olympics propose adding the sport of break dancing to the International Games.
Yes, break dancing, as well as surfing, climbing and skateboarding. I don’t argue with the point of these requiring athletic ability….but don’t they already have their own dedicated competitions and even sponsorships? Do we want to take every form of body movement, skill set, art form into the Olympian field?
Could get very crowded. Ballet and Cirque du Soliel performers are incredible athletes too. You see the argument. The Olympic Games could last for months if the numbers and types of competitions keep expanding. But then that’s the point isn’t it….with all those eyeballs to the screens and influence to gain.
