Flamingo Chicks is an inclusive dance school, enabling disabled children to enjoy ballet alongside their friends. However, they offer so much more than simply dance - they are a platform for social change, and their peer-elected 'Agents of Change' (similar to a school council) have spoken at the United Nations and Downing Street!
They recently had the opportunity to take part in a one-off Acting Masterclass with actor Joe Sims at the iconic Bristol Old Vic Theatre. Thanks to support from AMD, Flamingo Chicks were able to invite 17 children and their parents/carers to take part, and it was a fantastic experience for all. The children had so much fun taking on different characters, and they also worked on important life skills such as communication and dealing with a range of emotions. Opportunities like this are all too often a rarity for disabled children, and Flamingo Chicks are so grateful to AMD for their support which enabled this event to take place.
