"Elle fait de la danse." means: She is making up a dance, She takes dance lessons, She's dancing
Bonjour, I put that "she's dancing" and can't work out why it was marked wrong, the answer is "she takes dance lessons" please could you explain?
This question relates to:French lesson "Faire de, jouer à : talking about sports, hobbies and leisure activities"

Hi Gloria - this is explained in the lesson, but here's the section in case you missed it:
"Remember, English has two present tenses: I dance (simple), and I am dancing (continuous) which lets us make the distinction between something you do regularly versus something you're in the middle of doing. French has no present continuous tense, so we use faire de to distinguish the regular activity that you do, from the one-off activity you are doing. "
