Subject: These are all good suggestions for fixing the problem. HOWEVER, they won't work if she doesn't WANT to fix it.
In reply to: Mom 's message, "DD looks at the floor the whole time she dances. Worse still, she argues with me and says she doesn't. So I filmed her and showed her. OH!, she says, then still looks at the floor. How can I help her at home with this?" on 10:51:28 08/26/21 Thu

I'ld give her the suggestions then drop it. Kids work way harder at things that THEY choose to work on.

There are a lot of things kids HAVE to do... being a fabulous Irish Dancer isn't one of those "required" things.

Give her in the info and then walk away. Let it be her thing.

If she is unhappy with her placements at feis, and you can see this hasn't improved, you can then point out the issue again.

Honestly, I harped at my daughter about this kind of thing a lot when she was younger... occasionally she would listen, but more often not, and she was "mediocre" at feis for a long time. At some point SHE decided to get serious, and then she made great progress and I had little to do with it. In hindsight... I think I should have left her alone more. All kids are different, and some are much more receptive to "Mom's advice". YOu know you kid, but be dispense "mom-coaching" with a small spoon, is my recommendation.
