I always envied those partnerships where the couple could even reasonably match centers.  It is so much easier when that is the case.  This happened only once when I was coaching in London and he was my size.  The Foxtrot was so extraordinary that I almost came apart.  I'd never felt anything like it before.  He was astonished at my reaction.

I know of a couple where she is taller and I find that sometimes she looks distorted as she tries to put her head in a funny way not to be taller than him. Also another couple she had too much lowering in her legs compared to her partner, must be very difficult.

It takes some work on both sides, but I have seen partnerships on both sides of the spectrum that have made it very successful go of it... All the way to a world class level.
