This little PiGGy went to London. Not to visit the Queen but to tell tales at Number 10.
The fantastic Flamingo Chicks Dance School ( http://www.flamingochicks.co.uk/news/4590691130)
were in need of some tale telling entertainment after their tip top dramatic dances performed in front of Samantha Cameron last Tuesday evening at Number 10.
The troupe included children who are blind, autistic, have conditions such as Down’s Syndrome and cerebral palsy or are undergoing cancer treatment, yet none of them let the difficulties they face get in the way of their fun – they focus on what they can do, enjoying every second of being able to move and laugh with friends.
They performed extracts from Le Corsaire, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, The Firebird, Sleeping Beauty and La Bayadere in front of guests including families and volunteers, as well as the dance school’s patrons Tamara Rojo, Prima Ballerina and Artistic Director at English National Ballet, and Rosaleen Moriarty Simmonds OBE, a leading campaigner for equality for disabled people.
