How tall is the average ballerina?


According to Dance Informa, the average height for a female ballerina is between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 5 1/2 inches. Height requirements vary according to dance company preferences.

Dance companies strive for uniformity when choosing their ballerinas. Some European dance companies feature ballerinas that are an average height of 5 feet 8 inches tall. The height of the lead ballerina in the company gives a good indication of that company's height preferences.

Ballet companies look for ballerinas that fit a specific body type. They usually choose slender, lightweight and flexible dancers that are easy for their male counterparts to lift.
