Here 2 years of group classes and 3 privates. I can't do close embrace well. The privates teacher would not do it with me because in her opinion you have to become proficient in open first. Also she said our height difference precluded it. When I go to local milongas everyone does closed and I don't fit in at all. It has been a while since I tried it and it was awful I could not move having a person pasted to me. What am I doing wrong here. HELP! I think maybe to just bite the bullet and do closed from now on until I get it or I fear I never will?
