Wang Shenjiong, better known as "Danny" and a pioneer of break-dancing in China, said Olympic acceptance caps breaking's journey from the streets and being "a rogue dance in smoky nightclubs".Wang was China's head coach when break-dancing made its debut at the Summer Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires in October, and he has worked to help drum up support for the Olympic cause.Wang is a relative veteran -- most break-dancers are over the hill by 25, he said -- and has watched breaking grow in China since the late 1990s.At last year's Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, China's "X-Rain" finished eighth of 12 in the boys' competition, which was won by Russia's "Bumblebee". China may not strike many as the obvious place to find break-dancing.
