Hello again Gail, and welcome back to Just Answer!

In line dancing, especially for a judged competition, yes, it is desirable for everyone to have the same size steps. This will ensure a smoother movement for the entire line and in addition, make your team appear more coordinated and professional. The basic rule regarding step length in line dancing is that it should be the same as the width of your shoulders. If the dancers take steps that are too long or too short, this may lead to loss of balance and coordination for the whole team. Remember, the line should 'flow' and if some of the women on your team are taking really small steps, I agree with you that an adjustment needs to be made, so that every team member is taking the same size steps.

Try to practice this and encourage the 'tiny step' women to lengthen their steps so everyone is taking the same size steps and this will give you an edge in the competitions.

Best of luck in your next competition!

I hope this helped.

Hi again, Gail and thanks for your reply with additional information.

I'm so sorry to hear that you had to step down from the group, when the other ladies were technically not taking the correct size steps. You'll find another group where they follow the rules and be happier with that one!

I hope this helped you further.
