I found a spot in Paco Gomes' Brazilian Modern class, feeling somewhat confident about my abilities - confidence that was completely unfounded as it turned out. Paco, our dreadlocked Brazilian instructor, shouted orders for positions that were mysterious to me and he demonstrated the movements just once before having us try them. I struggled to follow the person in front of me and became increasingly insecure as Paco, who was equally handsome and frightening, barked instructions and insults our way.

Then came the performance. We were to break into groups to demonstrate the combinations we'd learned. Most of us were newbies, and we looked at each other pathetically - Paco wouldn't tell us how to split up or how to navigate the static versus traveling combinations. "Organize yourselves! he shouted.
We followed the lead of a few regulars and managed to correctly complete the expected moves. Only one person got kicked in the face.
When we instinctively applauded each other afterward, Paco said he didn't understand why we were doing that. I felt pretty demoralized until our instructor finally showed us his softer side. He pointed to a little knot in the hardwood floor that appeared to be a koala bear, an image he said he looks at when he's sad. He had us touch it with an index finger (left hand!).
