About the Studio
Who We Are
School of Breaking was established in September of 2012 with the intention to positively impact the lives of all people through music, dance and education. We are the essential place to learn Breaking and a sanctuary to develop yourself as a dancer.
We specialize in teaching the foundations of Breaking and other street dance forms. Our students are taught and encouraged to study the history, influential people and positive benefits of Breaking and Hip Hop culture.
We go farther by teaching more than just moves. Our instructors consistently reinforce positive values to develop character in our students. These values include, respect, discipline, doing your best, having fun, not comparing yourself to others, high ability to focus, strong listening skills and more. We guide our students towards the practice of self-awareness by allowing them to make mistakes and reflect on them. We show them that failure can be a fuel to motivate and can teach you to become better than you were yesterday. We demand sheer tenacity from our students. We encourage our students to use their inner voice to express themselves freely and to dance with confidence and creativity.
Our Mission is to educate, inspire and guide our students to express their unique abilities and personalities through dance.
We value good practice habits, discipline and pursuing your dreams. We recognize Breaking as an art form and the physical expression of Hip-Hop culture. We value Peace, Love, Unity and Having Fun.
How We Got Started
In 2003, Tommy and Chase met in college, they both enjoyed dance and eventually, with many others, developed a formidable dance crew. That dance crew made a big impact in Colorado and eventually grew to become a non-profit organization. The 2 friends maintained a strong purpose and vision to continue teaching, dancing, building and providing opportunities for the dance community. This non-profit would soon transform and become what we now know as, School of Breaking. School of Breaking has been open for 5 years and our story is just beginning! To be continued…
