Ballet & gymnastics to help Irish dancing

Hi there,
My 5 & a half year old has lots of potential in Irish dancing, her teachers are very excited about her. She picked it up very quickly & is already winning feis's in her age group. She has a weak core however & I would like to help her improve this. Any tips, would ballet & gymnastics help improve this? Any other tips for a beginner Irish dancer would be appreciated. Thanks, Elena

I see no particular reason gymnastics would help her, but absolutely, she should do Ballet!

Thanks for replying, I thought gymnastics might be good for her upperbody strength & overall flexibility, will start the ballet lessons after Christmas
