I believe I have mentioned this before that my wife is at least 3 inches taller. During our lessons, my instructor tells us we look fine because it forces us to stay in a good, upright ballroom position. He has on occasion, even lowered our arms a bit to make it look more natural. So I have no problem with it, and actually find it difficult to switch to a shorter partner sometimes. However, when we have danced in a show and I am in a suit coat, I tend to find out too late that, even though I can move my arms and extend for the turns and keeping good lines, I look kind of stiff because the coat tightens up in the shoulders. I don't think it would do that if my partner was the same height or even shorter than my 5-6. I would add, however, that my wife tends to wear flatter shoes, rather than heels. I agree with the poster that says if it feels pretty good and both dancers know the steps, it probably looks pretty good, too.

The last four demonstrators to visit our shores and to demonstrate at our championships none of the men have worn tails or even a jacket. What can look better than the way William Pino dresses and can be seen on youtube. An ordinary jacket can be a problem in the shoulders. I think it is the padded shoulders which cause the problem. Back to competitions There is no rule which says tails have to be worn.
