Who We Are

Established in 2012, School of Breaking serves as a cornerstone in Breaking and Hip-Hop education in Aurora and throughout Colorado.

Rooted in authenticity, our mission is to nurture and safeguard the rich legacy of Hip-Hop, drawing inspiration from its deep-seated connections to Black and Latino heritage, and fostering a vibrant community that thrives on these cultural ties. Positively influencing our community through rhythm, movement, art and knowledge, our objective is to provide students with comprehensive skills to delve into various aspects of Hip-Hop culture including Breaking, DJing, MCing, and Graffiti.

We strive to create an atmosphere where students can freely express themselves without fear of judgment, reinforcing the values of discipline, originality, and respect. We’ve seen firsthand the transformative impact our work has on our students’ physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Our Story

In 2003, while in college, Chase Evered began his dance journey. He and the original founders shared a passion for dance and noticed the lack of Hip Hop education and resources for breaking in Colorado. Together with many others, they founded a formidable dance crew and made a big impact on the Colorado Hip Hop dance scene. The crew then turned into a non-profit and successfully organized community jams and local events for the next 8 years. The non-profit eventually transformed into the School of Breaking and which has been in operation in Aurora for 11 incredible years.

In 2017, Le’Toya Garland joined Chase as a business partner and owner of School of Breaking. Her leadership, contributions, and impact has made a significant improvement to the business. 

Together, these friends and business partners have built a school, a community event center, after-school programs throughout Colorado, a youth competitive breaking team and a collection of services that continue to make a positive impact on the community. They look forward to watching School of Breaking continue to educate, inspire, and guide students in Breaking and Hip Hop culture for many more years to come!
