Chandigarh, October 18, 2021: With an aim to promote the 'Breakdancing' sport culture in the region city based 'Viva Dance Studio' at Scf-145, sector 17, Panchkula organised a breakdancing championship titled 'Cypher Battle Ground Vol I' at the Chandigarh Institute of Film and Theatre.

Akanksha Gupta, the organizer and MD of Viva Dance Studio claimed, “The main motive of holding the championship was to provide a platform to young talent and groom the enthusiasts for the upcoming Dancesport event in 2024 Olympics".

Ramesh Yadav, aka B-Boy Tornado who before the competition had also taken a workshop for the young break dancers at Viva Dance Studio, said, “I congratulate & thank Viva Dance Studio’s team, for organising such a great event and promoting the ‘breakdancing’ culture in the country. We need to create training infrastructure as most B-Boys and B-girls come from underprivileged sections.”

Akanksha Gupta further said, “Our country has an immense talent pool but lack of resources and sponsorship casts a dark shadow over the dreams of many B-Boys and B-Girls as they reportedly come from humble backgrounds. Currently the breakdancing sport is at a nascent stage in India, which direly needs government intervention and sponsors assistance to grow the culture in the country.”

After winning the trophy, an elated B-Boy Finalwar said, “This win means a lot to me. The competition wasn’t easy as many great dancers came from different parts of the country. But yeah finally my hard work paid off & I won the trophy.”
