The Fanfakids are a group of youngsters (6-18 of age) from Brussels who transform their youthful energy in an explosive concoction of rhythms. Their groove is a metropolitan mix of dance and music, which they can unleash anytime and anywhere!
Created during the 1st Zinneke Parade in 2000, the group has built up an impressive record of achievements in Belgium and abroad. After more than 20 years, the Fanfakids have grown into a fully-fledged cross-over between an urban educational program and an artistic production.
In collaboration with Urban Center Brussel, public schools and other partners, the Fanfakids continuously expand their functioning: more children can join the courses, which have been extended to breakdance, and different generations educate each other. Ever since the creation of the project, MetX has been the main partner for production, booking and artistic coordination.
Over the years, they have also created a close bond with various drum, dance and theater groups from Africa (Guinea, Ghana) and Europe (Prague, Rotterdam, Bologna and others via Erasmus+). Together, they regularly participate in exchange programs. Their smiles and energy are always disarming, feel free to call them international youth ambassadors of Brussels!
Fanfakids is a project of MetX in collaboration with Urban Center Brussel. Originally founded in partnership with D’Broej (WMKJ Centrum West), a number of schools, youth centers and other partners are now involved in the organisation of rehearsals and the intake of young people.
