You will most likely need to check into find a sports doctor that does hip replacements. YES you can come back and dance after a hip replacement. Mark Cuban owner of the Mavericks Basketball team had one and was on the floor with Dancing With The Stars TV show. His surgeon works on all kinds of sport pros. My instructor just had his hip replaced with this guy on April 28, 2014. He is set to be released to come back to the dance floor on June 16, 2014.
Key is to do everything your surgeon tells you as well as the PTs tell you. Work through the pain in rehab, (it WILL get better) do if you are able to push and do a few more reps then do so.
I know quite a few others who have had hip replacements and are back on the dance floor.
