Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
I remember my teacher who went pro with les petits ballet, said that a pro ballerina should be between 5'4 and 5'8!.

So I think you're fine!


hahahaha no way! im 5' 9", 14 years old and im still doing ballet! ballet is different from gymnastics! you dont need to be small! taller ballerinas look so much better and graceful! Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'm 5'7" in a half and I'm 13, so I understand the tall thing!. There are ballerinas that are tall!.[and they do look good]

no not at all!! im 5'2 and do ballet, i wish i was as tall as you!! your long legs will look awesome when your en pointe!! i wouldnt worry about it!. feel lucky!!Www@QuestionHome@Com

there's not really a height limit on being a dancer, maybe you won't be able to partner with certain people, but go for it and good luckkWww@QuestionHome@Com

You really can't be to tall for ballet!. I am 5 ft 7in and I am still growing! And that is not counting when I go up on pointe! So go ahead and dance your little heart away!Www@QuestionHome@Com
