The Fanfakids are a group of youngsters (6-16 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 as a collaboration between MetX and Centrum-West – D’Broej. Ever since, the Fanfakids have built up a unique reputation as a cross-over between an urban training program and an artistic production.

After more than 20 years, the Fanfakids expand their functioning. In collaboration with Urban Center Brussel, Brede Scholen and other partners, more children can join the courses, which have been extended to breakdance. MetX stays the main partner for production, booking and artistic coordination.

Despite their young age, they have an impressive record of achievements in Belgium and abroad. They feel at home at various festivals and have created a close bond with various drum, dance and theater groups from Africa and Europe. Their smiles and energy are always disarming, don’t hesitate to call them the international ambassadors for Brussels!
