The Top 10 BGirls You Should Look Out For in 2023


What is a BGirl?

Breaking, which is more commonly known to mainstream audiences as breakdancing, is an athletic style of street dance originating among African American and Puerto Rican communities in New York City in the 1970s.

People who practise this style of dance are called breakers, or breakdancers, with male practitioners being called B-Boys (break-boys), and female breakers being called B-Girls (break-girls).

Breaking is set to make its Olympic debut at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, giving the street dance style greater exposure to audiences all over the world. With B-Girls in the scene constantly working on sharpening their moves with their eyes set on the Olympics, take a look at the top 10 B-Girls who are at the top of their breaking game and taking this style to the next level!
