I'd have to support this comment wholeheartedly, being a tall woman who
nearly always finishes up on the men's side. When dancing with a man it's
quite difficult to adjust, not only to the position but also to refraining
from firmly directing my partner around.

And no-no to hats, thanks. I don't see the fun in paying megadollars to
get my hair done, only to finish up with "hat hair" by the end of the evening!
