2. Měi gè lĭbài dōu qù shànghǎi. (√)
3. Měi lĭbài dōu qù shànghǎi. (√)

1. Měi yí gè cì dōu qù Shànghǎi, wŏ huì qù zài "Mix" hējiǔ . (×)
2. Měi gè cì dōu qù Shànghǎi, wŏ huì qù zài "Mix"hējiǔ. (×)
3. Měi cì dōu qù Shànghǎi, wŏ huì qù zài "Mix" hējiǔ. (×)
Correct: Měi cì qù Shànghǎi, wŏ dōu huì qù "Mix" hējiǔ.
Since “次(cì)” is a measure word, so it cannot be used together with another measure word “个(gè)”.

你好, Takako!我很好啊,你呢?
Your first sentence should be "每天我都给花园浇水。" And the last sentence should be "每个星期三我们都跳舞。"
“水” is an noun which means water. “To water something” in Chinese is “给 something 浇水.”
“To dance” in Chinese is "跳舞." "A dance" is "舞蹈."

Have a good day!

Ellie
