    Thanks!!
    Also, I understand there are height requirements for face characters but what about dancers and performers? I am pretty tall, 5'10" so I hope that doesn't work against me. Oh and one more question, what about weight? Most sites say you just need to be physically fit but I have a feeling they are more strict on weight than they say. Do they only select people who will fit into costumes they already have made? I have a large bust and I don't want that to be an issue!

    I want to say the dance roles are more based on ability then on height, but I am not 100% positive. As for weight, I don't think bust will be as much as an issue as overall weight
