What we do

breaking down barriers to inclusion through dance!

#balletnotbarriers

Flamingo Chicks is an inclusive community giving disabled children and those with illnesses such as cancer, the opportunity to enjoy ballet and explore movement alongside their friends. We also provide a vital peer support network for parents and carers, intergenerational volunteering, global outreach and advocacy!

“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 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.”

Introducing our Agents for change

The Flamingo Chicks’ Agents of Change (AOC) is our youth leadership program 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.
