** One that probably does qualify as HugeGuyTinyGirl is the Season 6 pairing of 6-foot-1 Tony Dovolani with 4-foot-11 Marissa Jaret Winokur.

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Utterly unavoidable in Season 26, with the ''7'3"'' [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation Kareem Abdul-Jabbar]] as one of the celebrity contestants. The tallest female dancers in that season's cast are 5'6" (Kareem's partner Lindsay Arnold and Sharna Burgess). Two of the female celebrity contestants are taller than any of the female dancers.[[note]]former Olympic softball pitcher Jennie Finch (6'1") and current college basketball player Arike Ogunbowale (5'8")[[note]]

** Many times, the line can be drawn between current and former pro athletes (Technicians) vs. actors or musicians (Performers.) The athletes usually have exceptional coordination and strength; however, since so many sports encourage a "game face" that shows zero emotion to avoid showing an opponent you're tired or in pain (which might give them a psychological advantage,) they come across as wooden. The actors, on the other hand, are much better at emoting and generally being entertaining (it is their job, after all,) but are much more likely to be uncoordinated or simply more vulnerable to fatigue. This was actually discussed at least once by the pro dancers.
** Among the judges Len Goodman favors technique while Bruno Tonioli favors performance. Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough tends to strike a balance between the two.

** Season 26 mostly averts this trope: it's actually titled ''Dancing with the Stars: Athletes'', with all 10 celebrity contestants being current or former athletes. That said, the trope still exists on another level, with the three figure skaters as the "performers" and the remainder as "technicians".
