Hi! I'm 15 years old, 5'9" (I've always been tall for my age), and 130lb. I'm a very serious dancer-I dance 6 days a week, so I get plenty of exercise. I've been trying to lose weight, but it's just not happening! I eat really healthy, but I love CHOCOLATE! Any tips or ideas on how to not eat so much chocolate?

You shouldn't be trying to lose weight, if you are 5/9" and only 130 lbs.

Here's a bit of height/weight chart I copied for you to see:

Height               Small Frame        Medium Frame          Large Frame
5'9"                       129-142             139-153                   149-170    

As you can see, you're already borderline underweight, if you have a small frame, and severely underweight if you have a large frame.

Chocolate is actually good for you; opt for the dark chocolate, rather than milk chocolate, which is full of sugar.  When you eat a piece of chocolate, sit down and concentrate on it, really savor it... that should satisfy you, so you won't go overboard.

Don't lose any weight.
