“We have been impressed from day one with how well the FDSARR have embraced the Breaking community in Russia and how extremely well organised they have been,” said World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) President Shawn Tay. “The WDSF heartily congratulates the FDSARR on their successful Breaking championships and continued commitment to all dancers. They are clearly one of the federations our other National Members Bodies should be taking inspiration from in the lead up to Breaking’s Olympic debut in 2024.”
