Flamingo Chicks creates an inclusive community giving disabled children and those with illnesses such as cancer the opportunity to enjoy ballet alongside friends. We are passionate about providing an inclusive, fun and rich dance experience for children, by translating a version of ballet that is accessible to all, regardless of ability. We are looking for enthusiastic, committed Dance Volunteers to assist children during their dance classes to ensure that all children can experience the physical and wellbeing benefits of movement and dance. No previous dance experience is required.
