Subject: My daughter has been OC and is a 2x WQ. (I am only pointing this out for relevance to the question) I absolutely agree with the previous comment "Quality vs Quantity."

My daughter used to practice for 1-1.5 hours every day she didn't have class, but she didn't really see a drastic improvement in her results until she started focusing more during her practice sessions. She let go of the mindset that she had to practice at least an hour a day to see results. Some days, she doesn't have much time to practice, so she will just drill a problem area for 20-30 minutes. Other days, she will work mostly (or completely) on her soft shoe for over an hour. Others, she focuses on just her set or hard shoe for most or all of her session. She has one or two focus areas for each session with the goal of mastering them before she takes her shoes off. Quality over quantity has served her well. Make sure your dancer isn't trying to accomplish too much during every practice session (which can be too much to bite at once) and has focused goals. She may be happier with her results in the long run.
