How can regular exercise or dance help for healthy bones and low vit D levels; which is the safest vit d supplement for 5 yo kid?

In brief: Movement

Movement forces our bodies to work against gravity and make stinger bones.
Dietary sources of Vit D safest - dairy products, eggs, salmon, tuna (any oily fish), fortified breads and cereals. I personally like the calcium/Vit D chewables as some of my patients can't tolerate dairy. A little sunshine is good too but avoid excessive exposures.
