Project Breakalign

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Project Breakalign was founded by Nefeli Tsiouti in 2013 to prevent injuries for breakers/dancers. The research team of dance and medical specialists is committed to creating a methodology of corrective exercises which will reduce the risk of injuries for breakers.

‘This is the first university research of Dance Medicine on bboys/bgirls in the UK, conducted by bboys and bgirls, with the aim to create accessible and accurate knowledge for the hip-hop community. The research will involve bboys and bgirls who are active in the hip-hop scene as the core team, as well as researchers, physiotherapists, coaches, [and] medical specialists’. 

A Kickstarter campaign has been set up to help expand their research programme.

Project Breakalign is working in association with Dance UK, and has ethical approval from University College London.
