Washington, DC - Spring 2018

Recommended Posts

I'm 5'3" and have stood next to Tiler. I'd say 5'5" is about right. Sterling is about the same height as Tiler. 

Most female ballerinas are medium height. The really tall girls like Maria Kowroski or Tess Reichlen are rare. One thing that makes Tiler look shorter is that she has somewhat small feet without much of an arched instep. Very often long, arched insteps often give the illusion of height onstage.

Another is her build, which is not particularly slender (in terms of bone structure, musculature, etc.). I think that's another reason she comes across as shorter than she is, whereas some other dancers in the 5'5 range can read as taller onstage.
