Flamingo Chicks virtual classes - available now!

First of its kind virtual dance classes to keep disabled children moving during lockdown! 

 

We’re missing your lovely students and know lockdown is a challenge.  To help, we’ve created new, free, professional online classes that get disabled kids moving and are linked to the curriculum too.  

 

Adaptations are provided throughout, including ways parents/carers/teachers can support children with limited mobility and ways to translate different movements.  They are also Makaton signed.

 

“There is so much online content out there BUT it is extremely hard to find physical activity resources for disabled children.  I’m so pleased they now have this! I absolutely love this resource – what a fantastic way for children to get some activity and movement into their day, as well as being great fun. I know our families will love it!” Stephanie Wheen, Paediatric Physiotherapist and CEO of Gympanzees
