Yes: Depending on the location and severity of the labral tear and subsequently how involved the arthroscopic repair is will determine how long it will take to get you dancing again, but full unrestricted activity is the goal of treatment.

Eventually, yes: Hip arthroscopy causes mild to moderate pain and discomfort, especially with hip flexion. Labral tear debridement by definition removes a source of pain. Once the portals heal and the muscles about the hip can tolerate contraction and stretching and regain a full arc of motion (1-6 weeks), more active physical exercise may be allowed (salsa, etc.). Discuss your rehabilitation with your surgeon.

Dance: Depending on your findings at arthroscopy, your return to sports/dance will be affected. It is important to realize that it is a major surgery and pain, discomfort and weakness can persist for months. Therapy and strength training are essential after hip arthroscopy to return to your desired activity.
