our granddaughter is taking dance lessons and in the dance company has been dancing since she was 3yrs old she goes 3 days a week for hour & half and then every other Friday plus once a month for the dance company she is in 3rd grade and her grade our not real good now I think she is getting to tried out but her mother said she likes to dance
All children do better in school with exercise. Too much dance depends on the child, family, and how they mange time. If she is sleeping well, and getting good grades, then you are ok. If the grades are plummeting, then she might trade the dance time for some tutoring. Offer that.
