I am looking for some valuable lived experience with ballet dancers (and parents)in training or in companies who have ADHD. Please PM if you don’t want to talk too publicly. My teen is unmedicated ADHD, and currently manages well within the tightly structured environment of vocational training. The school is aware and very good indeed after some guidance from me. 😉 I am interested in how your child experiences their condition as an older dancer in training and/or as a member of a company. We have met a rather large number of children along the way, and most have decided not to disclose the condition as they dance along their ballet journey. For the most part I am interested in any and all experiences. Information is power. I have posted about School of American Ballet in a separate post and I notice that the American schools are in my experience much more (at least in their prospectus and on the phone) inclusive, transparent and forward thinking than the U.K. This of course may not be born out in reality.
