Breakin’ (also known as Breakdance: the Movie or Break Street ’84 in the UK and other regions) is a 1984 American breakdancing-themed comedy-drama. The film was directed by Joel Silberg, written by Charles Parker and Allen DeBevoise and was based on a story by Parker, DeBevoise, and Gerald Scaife.

The film’s setting was inspired by a 1983 German documentary titled Breakin’ and Enterin, set in the multi-racial hip hop club, Radio-Tron, based out of MacArthur Park in Los Angeles. Many of the artists and dancers from that documentary, including Ice T (who makes his film debut as a club MC), and Michael ‘Boogaloo Shrimp’ Chambers, went straight from Breakin’ and Enterin’ to star in Breakin’.
