thats the same as me only i am 12!. i am the same height and weight!. i think that is a good weight for her height if she is a dancer!. she is thin but not too skinny!. i think that she has nothing to worry about!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

A good weight is one where you have enough muscle to complete a long dance, to jump high, to hold your positions!. You also need flexibility and a sense of music!. There are far more dancers who are too skinny than too fat!.

If she is aiming at professional ballet, it is too early to worry about perfect weight!. If she's the wrong height, it won't matter at all!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'd say she's either underweight or at a healthy weight!.

She is only 11!. She shouldn't worry about her weight!. It really all depends on how her body is proportioned!. I have a friend who weighs 160lbs at 5"7', but she looks like she's only 115lbs!. It's because she has a lot of muscle and she has big boobs!. She dances better than I do!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

80 pounds is a perfectly fine weight for a dancer her age and height!.
There is no reason for her to lose any pounds, but if she wants to pig out on something every now and then, that's ok!.
i'm a dancer myself, and i enjoy it very much!.
have fun!. (:Www@QuestionHome@Com
