How Do You Actually Breach a Contract?

While many business litigation cases commonly include a breach of contract claim, what does it actually entail? Here is a quick excerpt from one of my briefs explaining what a breach actually is: 

The essential elements for a breach of contract action are “the existence of a contract, the plaintiff’s performance under the contract, the defendant’s breach of that contract, and resulting damages.” US Bank N.A. v. Lieberman, 98 A.D.3d 422, 423 (1st Dept. 2012).
