Monster Kids

Chi-Town's Finest Breakers

Chi-Town Finest Breakers are a group of siblings ranging from age 6-15 from the windy city of Chicago. Their passion is to dance and entertain and they've been through many obstacles. At one point the family hit rock bottom and became homeless, but that didn't break this family apart.??Through their struggles, determination and hunger they achieved many of their goals, winning countless battles.

They've performed with many top artists from Drake to Black Eyed Peas, placed in the Top 18 Semi Finalists on the CBS Show Paula Abdul's Live To Dance, winning the fans over with their strong dedication and humble spirits, and were voted Chicago's Most Talented kids at the Chicago Music Awards.

Monster is proud to support and work with these talented young dancers as they reach for their dreams and work to inspire and entertain  during school tours and live performances.


“Never give up, and never trust somebody who won't dance. ”
