Flamingo Chicks - Dance classes for children

It’s not just adults that need to keep their fitness levels up during lockdown – it’s just as important for kids too.

Flamingo Chicks, a community allowing children with disabilities to enjoy dance and movement, has launched free virtual classes. They’re designed to teach children dance moves at the same time as learning. They cover a range of topics, from science (like the one below) to maths, and can be found on the Flamingo Chicks YouTube channel. The classes are specially designed with disabled children in mind, and can be a lifesaver for parents running out of appropriate activities for their kids!
