Dancer with a fibula fracture

My 14 year old daughter fractured her fibula-ankle-while dancing. does anyone know how long can she expect to be in a cast and how long before she can resume a very heavy dance schedule? She knows she'll need PT but is trying to plan her fall schedule. She has been in a cast for 4 weeks and has 2 more to go.

The Palumbo Patella Stabilizing Brace creates a dynamic, medially displacing force to the patella and allows functional activity while providing stability throughout the full range of knee motion.
