Ganchos with my mother-in-law backfired... Now she wants both ganchos and hugs! At one event to each lady that wanted a greeting hug I said "Gancho?" and held my arms out in dance position. They all seemed to think it was a neat way to do a greeting, and I got out of several hugs! Win-win! Tango itself has been fun, and DW's enjoyment has made it very worthwhile. It was eye opening for me when I switched partners and the lady followed as if reading my mind. Now DW and I can do it, great stuff! Now that I have read up on the topic, I'm seeing introverts in Tango. I'm not alone. I used to think dancers were extroverts by definition. It was also really valuable for me to understand the difference between shyness and introversion/extroversion. I never would have guessed a simple dance class would lead me down this road! I also never expected to write so much.
