Innovation and inclusion through dance!

WHY WE DO IT

giving children with disabilities and illnesses such as cancer the opportunity to enjoy ballet alongside their friends.

The Flamingo Chicks’ Agents of Change (AOC) is our youth leadership programme for disabled children. It’s an elected body of 10 who represent their peers, lead our organisation and campaign for a fair future for disabled kids.

You’ll find group photos in the dropbox, we’re having a relaunch in Sept as some have grown up and become adults so we’ve lost a few and are appointing new ones soon. Therefore, I’d suggest talking about them collectively rather than individually.

Kristy Hooper, mum to Lily-Grace who is severely sight impaired.

“When we received her diagnosis, I couldn’t imagine her having the same opportunities most little girls have. From the age of four she asked repeatedly if she could go to dance classes. I didn’t think this to be possible for her until we found Flamingo Chicks. Now – her little face lights up and breaks into a huge smile at the very mention of it! After her last few sessions she has asked how many sleeps until she can go again! I cannot rave enough about how she has grown in confidence since her first class. Everyone has noticed and commented. It’s just wonderful.”

Emma Sterland Community Manager at disability charity Scope

“It can be so hard for parents to find activities for children with complex needs. If they’re in a wheelchair or they have weak muscle tone or involuntary movements, it shouldn’t mean they’re left out of the fun – far from it. Flamingo Chicks is such a fantastic idea and will give many hours of happiness to children of all abilities, while also providing significant physical benefits.”

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.
