Thank you for posting your query on ATD.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Your daughter might have been suffering from osgood shlatter disease . This is a type of osteochondritis which usually comment in her age and specially athletes and dancers . No need to worry a lot. just stay away from dancing for few days ,take rest and analgesics such as ibuprofen will be of help.Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
