Can the follow be a lot taller than the lead? Hello all! This is my first posting in this forum, so be kind if this has been asked before, heehee. I actually made this account to ask this one particular question (but I'm glad I found this forum, and I plan on sticking around!!). Here's my situation: I'm 5'11". My BF whom I love very much is 5'7". So, I'm half a head taller than him. I love dance, especially Argentine Tango. He's never danced before, and we want to take lessons together so that we can take it at his speed. I would like us to go as far as we can, i.e. performances and the like if we're good enough. But I obsess on the height difference! I never see females, even with their heels, taller than their leads. And I think of me in heels, and that will put me a full head taller than him...but low heels might look even sillier! I really believe that we can compensate and actually be very interesting to watch if I can come across as very elegant and he carries himself as a very strong lead. Ohh, and I feel like my only saving grace is my slenderness. Standing side by side, yes I'm a good deal taller, but I'm still "smaller" than him by 30 lbs, so at least I don't look like a beast standing next to him. Would my slender frame help with the visual "package" of us dancing together when I'm so much taller? Has anyone seen a dance couple where she's a lot taller, but it really works for them? Or does it always look awkward and silly? I plan to dance with him regardless, and I know we'll really enjoy ourselves, but this is something on my mind. Thanks!!
