A good troupe leader will arrange as best possible. In my case, I still feel like Mt. Everest next to most of my dance sisters!
I don't mind being in the back because I'm big - compared to many/most of my dance sisters, I'm HUGE!
If more than a single row is needed, I generally arranged dancers with the better rehearsed individuals in more prominent positions regardless of size. If a person fails to rehearse, he or she hasn't earned a place in the front; learning that is part of learning to perform in public.
"LIttle Package of Dynamite"? That would be Karri Duke who actually didn't pick the moniker, it was bestowed upon her.
Nadia was very diminutive herself so I can see that. I actually own both of Nadia's dance canes, which are technically too short for me but I adapt.I know Carrara Nour, and yes, she did buy a costume that was originally owned by Nadia Gamal. She is also a professional dancer in the Orlando area who gets gigs on a regular basis, and her height doesn't seem to interfere. She's also a terrific dancer, she's beautiful and full of confidence, never mind she's not even five feet tall.
