Little dancers performances
On 2002 the group organized the first children street performance, that put together in the neighbourhood several children's group from the province of Bizkaia. Since then, that event has taken place every year in October, each time with bigger support of the groups and the spaectators.
In the performances, children from different groups make a "Pasacalles" (kind of tour, walk with music) through the streets and make different dance exhibitions in several cornerns in the neighbourhood. At the end, they get together in a square to end the performance dancing all together.
