What we do

Breaking down barriers to inclusion through dance!

Flamingo Chicks is a multi-award-winning national charity and inclusive community that gives disabled children the opportunity to explore dance and movement. Over 30,000 children have danced with us across the UK since our first class in 2013. We champion young disabled voices and deliver pioneering activities to develop and support the confidence, creative expression and physical competencies of the children we serve.

  • 79% of children saw improvements in their physical ability
  • 83% had greater confidence and resilience
  • 90% of families felt less socially isolated after joining Flamingo Chicks
  • 90% of volunteers said they had re-evaluated what disabled children were capable of

“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.”
