Different teams, with different looks have dealt with it in different ways. For instance, the Kerrs, Denkova/Stavitski, have adjusted the way they skate(d) (due to their similar height).
In terms of teams being punished for their height difference being too much?
(These are two teams, off the top of my head that have/have had large height differences as well) haha They achieved a certain level of success, don't you think!?
Besides...I don't even think Maia has finished growing yet! She's still young.
Especially with the direction ice dance seems to be taking--getting more athletic (look at the complexity of the lifts that teams are performing these days!) I would think that a height difference could only help them!
As for the rest of their appearance, I don't seem to think they're as "cute" anymore. When I watch their FD from last year, and their programs this year, I don't see, "CUTE." I see maturity. Maia is turning into quite the beauty and Alex is definitely no slouch.
