INNOVATION AND INCLUSION THROUGH DANCE!
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.
