Dinghy Heave to question?

Is it possible to heave to in a 12' centerboard dinghy?

The reason I ask is because its something I have never done and when I have been to sailing schools the instructors seem reluctant to do as well (not sure why?). So I have this practice dinghy that I have been putting considerable time and effort into before i look for a bigger boat and I want to try to heave to. Mind you I don't think I'd try to ride out storm conditions in a light boat this size.

All info appreciated.
