This is the Let's Go Club, but mini!

0:00:020:00:04

Expect making, exploring, supersizing, dancing, fact-finding,

0:00:040:00:09

and laughing! We've only got a few minutes,

0:00:090:00:12

so get ready for more fun from the Let's Go Club.

0:00:120:00:15

Hi, my name is Millie.

0:00:150:00:17

My favourite things to do are ride my tricycle...

0:00:170:00:20

TRICYCLE BELL RINGS

0:00:200:00:22

..and I like drawing pictures.

0:00:220:00:25

This is my brother Benny.

0:00:250:00:27

We really like to make videos of ourselves telling jokes.

0:00:270:00:31

Millie, why do seagulls live near the sea?

0:00:310:00:34

I don't know. Why do seagulls live near the sea, Benny?

0:00:340:00:37

Because if they lived near the bay, they'd be called "bagels"!

0:00:370:00:41

There's one thing I love doing - wheelchair dancing.

0:00:410:00:45

When I'm at school, Mrs Jones helps me with my standing frame.

0:00:490:00:53

I have lots of fun with my friends when I'm here.

0:00:560:00:59

I started dancing when I was four years old

0:01:020:01:04

to help me with my wheelchair skills.

0:01:040:01:08

We play games to help us with our dancing

0:01:080:01:10

and to move safely around each other.

0:01:100:01:14

CLASSICAL MUSIC PLAYS

0:01:150:01:17

This dance is called the waltz.

0:01:170:01:21

It's quite tricky to get right,

0:01:210:01:23

because you have to watch your partner

0:01:230:01:26

and turn with them, side to side.

0:01:260:01:28

And we get to freestyle so we can do any moves we want to.

0:01:310:01:35

You can get to go really fast when you're freestyling.

0:01:380:01:41

We also get to take part in competitions,

0:01:440:01:47

which is really exciting.

0:01:470:01:48

I used to get nervous, but now I really enjoy it.

0:01:510:01:55

Everyone gets together and we show off our skills to each other.

0:01:560:02:00

And I get to dance with my friends, just like this.

0:02:010:02:04

I love dancing. We have such a great time.

0:02:090:02:11

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:140:02:16

I am Millie, and this is what I do.

0:02:190:02:22

You can join the Let's Go Club, too.

0:02:220:02:25

Grab a grown-up and head to the CBeebies website.

0:02:250:02:28

There are songs to sing, things to make and do,

0:02:280:02:31

and CBeebies radio, too!

0:02:310:02:33

Remember, we're the club that never closes!

0:02:330:02:37

Let's Goer Millie tells us all about her wheelchair dancing!
