My daughter eats TONS of junk food and (I swear I am not kidding) she doesn't gain alot of weight.
Report as
She is 11, her metabolism is still fast. At 15, mine is much slower, therefore I cannot eat like your daughter.

your anorexic probably I think your average but I know you feel short cuz so many kids in high school are tall. but its probably good to be kinda tiny when you do ballet anyway

Companies want taller ballerinas actually. My mother is 5'7, it's frustrating that I am still small..

oh really? im surprised to hear that. well anyway you will still grow until your like 21 so you probably be about your moms size or just a little shorter

That's just about average. Try to gain a little muscle weight though. You can Google it and find out how to gain weight healthily.

Okay, I can't eat though, I'll be fat. Should I just dance a few more hours a day, up it to 12 hrs?
Report as
What do you mean you can't eat? You have to eat. Your body needs it. Just because you eat, that doesn't mean it's bad or makes you gain weight. It's important to eat enough but HEALTHY! I don't wanna ask this, but do have an eating disorder? You're dangerously underweight.

I mean that whatever I eat will make me fat. If I eat, then I feel obese. I've done this for years now... I'm not dead yet. All I need to be is skinny. Companies don't want a fat ballerina.

Its an average height for a girl, 80 pounds in my opinion is too skinny for a 15 yr old girl, even for a ballerina, gain a little muscle weight maybe, swimming, running, stair climber, of course I can't see you o this is just my opinion.

Okay, I can't eat though. Should I up my dance hours from ten to twelve?
Report as
I would swim, it works your body and muscles in a different differen way than dancing allowing you to build better muscle tone, your body is probably used to dancing so it would take longer to build versus swimming which your body probably is used to.
Report as
Okay, I will try. Now to find time, lol
Report as
Lol, I can imagine how busy you are, I wish you all the luck in the world, I hope you succeed in your dancing,
