Translates "her" as "sia"... should be " ŝia".

No it should not, unless she is dancing in some other female's room.

Well, that could be the English translation as well. It is only context that makes us assume it is her own room. Anyway, I learnt something.

Why would it be sia if it were her own room?

Interesting, so we would still use sia if we were talking about a guy? "Li dancas en sia ĉambro."

Accusative is not used, because there is nothing, which could demand its use. After prepositions like "en" or "apud" follows usually the nominative.
