Yes, you can be taller. While I am 6 ft, I frequently (every chance I get)dance with 3 ladies that are as tall or taller than I am. One is about 3 inches taller. They are fun to dance with because they "dance tall" too. No lady is fun to dance with if she slumps and tries to be shorter. A tall lady allows the male to stretch his steps and sway in a way that many shorter women cannot do. Don't get me wrong. It is fun to dance with shorter women too but I must confess that it is difficult to dance a waltz with someone that is seven inches shorter.

Bravo for the tall lady. Guys, if you are not dancing with them because of your ego - try it just a few times (until you get used to the way the other dances) and you will find that dancing with a tall lady is great for your ego - and hopefully hers too.

Ray, I'm fairly new on this site and have found Dance Talk to be wonderful and so helpful, particularly replies such as yours (and Ellen's too).
I'm about 5'8-1/2 in heels and occasionally dance with a man who I love dancing with, but he's a bit shorter than I - I think he enjoys dancing with me too. However, for a few weeks now, I've been concerned about height! By the way, my girlfriend who is 4" taller than I, is VERY concerned, rather self-conscious about her height. Another thing: It seems like most of the women at one of the places I dance, wear pretty spike- heels. (I'm a bit concerned about their backs!) But getting to the point, your encouragement to DANCE TALL and NOT SLUMP and everything else you said was very, very encouraging. In a few replies, I've read "Dancing into your knees." This is a "dumb" question, but does this mean a tall woman can dance BR and Latin dances with shorter men with her knees bent? And one more thing...Are lower heels as attractive as high heels?
Thanks again.
