What makes your sport different than anything else?

Breakers and jumpers shared very similar answers to this question; they expressed how their sport encompassed the entire body and had limitless possibilities: “breaking is the most raw style of dance - you can be anything” - Noah. They explained how breaking and double dutch are accessible sports to everyone and how it's very liberating for those who partake in it. However, the breakers stressed the importance of expressing culture and identity more than the jumpers did. Eric Nishimoto explained that breaking is a storytelling movement and Heatrock added that the culture is about style and personality: “Breakdancers worry about a dynamic move. Bboys and Bgirls worry about a dynamic style.”
