Hello sweet_ames and welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers! Please take a few momnets to stop by the Welcome forum so we may learn a bit more about you, such as how long you have been dancing or if there are other interests you have.

 

At age 13, I was already my full height of 5' 6 1/2". It was just great for me. I since I was taller than my friends of my age group often I was given different opportunities that were challenging and required more responsibility.

 

Don't worry too much about it now. Only time will tell how tall you will be. Dancers today are of all heights in many different companies.

 

Enjoy! :D

Tall is good these days, sweet_ames :D As vrs said, sometimes we grow almost all at once and then stop, while some grow more slowly over the years. But there are dancers out there today well over 5'7", so don't waste your energy worrying about it!

I just turned fourteen, am in eighth grade, and am 5"8 3/4. I like my current height, but I hope I don't grow too much more because I also have long feet, which add to my length when I stand en pointe. Is that a bad thing? :P

No, not a bad thing at all. :unsure:

Do principal dancers tend to be taller, smaller, or average? Or does it not matter?

Prinicipal dancers tend to be all sizes. Some are quite tall, some are quite tiny. But they all dance big!

I am 5'7" and am almost 14 in 8th grade. In My dance studio I am one of the taller girls but their are a few around my age who are even taller. In my opinion it is compleatly normal to feel insecure about height but remember you are not alone!
