ifnotwhynot Posted May 6, 2008 Report Share Posted May 6, 2008 Does anybody know if children tend to maintain the same body proportions as they grow, or can their limbs gradually become longer or shorter in relation to their body? Is the "perfect ballet body" always defined in early childhood or can it develop or be lost as the body grows? I know children all grow at different rates and, compared to their peers, can seem tall one year and short the next but do the actual proportions always stay about the same? I have never really thought about this before and therefore haven't "scientifically" followed the progress of any children (not even of my son, to be honest, who is now a teenager who does seem to be all arms and legs all of a sudden!) so I'd be interested to hear of any thoughts about what I might expect with my ten year old daughter!
