Yes. 110% yes. If you don't stretch you’re more likely to tear something. First thing you do at a track meet is stretching and warmups.

It might help! It could definetely take longer but if you do it everyday once or twice and make sure you are having a good stretch it should be okay! I would reccomend 5 minutes or more instead of 3 but if 3 works for you go for it!
Yes, of course. With all the activity I have in practising music I am always prone to issues with arm muscles. I already noticed that stretching frees my body up and my playing is more relaxed
Yes! As a dancer myself, I usually do a quick, 5-10 minute warm-up before classes, gradually stretching more throughout the warm-up. Because I’m warmed up, my muscles are loose and that makes it less likely for them to strain while doing physical activity.
