Hi,

I just wonder whether it's acceptable to say ''ability IN dancing, maths, the social sciences, etc''?

    I would certainly talk about "ability" in connection with maths and dancing.

    I don't know that the social sciences are associated with any particular ability or inborn aptitude. I might talk about a general "academic ability" that is needed if you want to study theoretical subjects.
