France, April 23 -- The Carnavalet Museum is dedicated to the history of Paris, from prehistory to the present day. Located in the central Marais district, it is one of the most visited museums in the French capital.

"Breakdancing is completely part of this Parisian history, or at least the history of the Grand Paris project and its suburbs," Maxime Boulegroun-Ruyssen, project superviser at Carnavalet Museum, told RFI.

"We wanted to show how breakdance could be brought into the museum as part of this rather exceptional event, the Olympic Games," she explains.

As part of the "Cultural Olympiad", the museum offers breakdance workshops for school groups and those with little or no cultural experience.
