I guess I don't see the problem here. Someone wants to volunteer to help
the organization. Yay!
So the person hasn't danced much. So what? There are other people who do
dance on the board, right? It's not like this person is going to initiate
something that would hurt the dance and manage to carry the day against a
bunch of dancing board members who would know better.
If the problem is that this person would be bad for the board for other
reasons (unrelated to the lack of dance experience), then you should
address that the same way you would address it if a regular dancer who
wouldn't be a good choice asked to join the board.
