My daughter says she wants to do pairs or dance but there are hardly any boys to skate with. Can she still do this type of skating?

Well, yes and no. She can learn dances and her coach, or another more experienced skater can do tests with her, but the door is pretty much closed on doing competitions if she doesn't have a partner. Pairs is pretty much out without a partner.
Some day, someone will figure out how to convince young boys to figure skate when they're young so that when they're teenagers they'll appreciate the benefits of being at a club filled with beautiful young women skaters. A subtlety that escaped me in my youth.
