Flamingo Chicks provides an inclusive dance class where disabled children can explore and enjoy movement alongside their friends.Why the community needs us
Our dancers have a variety of needs including those who are blind, those with Downs syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and cancer.All too often these children are excluded from social activities. Flamingo Chicks is essential for both physical and emotional well-being. Whilst the little ones dance - parents have a much needed hour of respite where they can enjoy free massages or chat to others swapping tips and stories.Our impact on the community
We see 3000 children through our classes each year! Parent feedback: 100% of parents & carers would recommend Flamingo Chicks to others / 96% of parents and carers said Flamingo chicks helped their child's co-ordination and balance / 100% said classes have improved their child's social development, confidence and overall happiness! We have an unprecedented demand for these classes with in excess of 100 applications for every 15 places!
We're always looking for volunteers! From dance-helpers to drivers, and tea makers to photographers! Either weekly or ad hoc.
