    a good dancer

    1-She is a good dancer for her age.
    2-She is quite a dancer for her age.
    3-She is a dancer for her age.

    4-She is a good dancer, for her age.
    5-She is quite a dancer, for her age.
    6-She is a dancer, for her age.


    I don't think 3 and 6 work, unless 'age' is understood to mean 'period of time'.
    She is a dancer for the period of time she is living in.

    In the second batch, 'for her age' has been added as an afterthought.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I agree with you that 3 and 6 don't work.
