In brief: Balance/Brace
Balance the ligaments- stretch achilles and strengthen the peroneal tendons (outside).
Brace- stirrup style or lace up ankle brace. No high heels.

In brief: Evaluation
If you are suffering from recurrent sprains, you may have laxity in the ligaments that make up the ankle.
You may need a course of physical therapy for retraining, a brace for use during dancing or if there is severe laxity or tear of the ankle ligaments surgery to strengthen the ankle. See a specialist (podiatrist or foot/ankle orthopedist) for an evaluation.
