In brief: Strain, sprain, pain
Do you mean dwts as in dancing with the stars? Well, there are slips and falls that can result in broken bones, eg, colles fracture of the outstretched arm. Spinal pain or injury could occur from jitterbugging, i presume.
Knee or ankle twisting could cause problems, eg. But--dancing and exercise can be beneficial for the heart, overall fitness. It would be best to have physical exam, supervision.
