I have been accused of being a pushy mum, am I?

Your friend sounds pretty dim, and pretty dismissive of your dd's abilities. OK so not everyone is going to go to uni - that doesn't mean they can't do well and achieve their potential. Maybe its more important for your dd than it would be for others - if writing is always going to be a struggle, then showing that she has put time and effort and commitment into something will be good when she goes to college or into a job or whatever.

I guess this friend will have less influence once dd goes to secondary anyway, so maybe no need to worry about it, but I'd certainly encourage friendships with others who have a broader outlook.

Pot, kettle and black spring to mind. Ignore this woman.

"Its not like dd is likely to uni anyway." Well it is also unlikely that her dd will go to full time dance school or dance in the West End as an adult.

Your dd is doing an activity she enjoys and benefits from. You can imagine her continuing with it when she is older. Sounds good to me.

maintenance club at school, where they work with the janitor and wear boiler suits.

This sounds like the most awesome club ever!
