I want very much to learn to lead... not so much because of shortage of leaders, more for the experience in itself. I very much like to follow, but I feel it is only half of the experience. I have done about 40 classes plus some (but not extensive) social dancing. I have a brief fear that I might confuse the steps, if I start learning to lead to early - on the other hand I have heard that in some dances it is custom to learn both lead- and followsteps at the same time. You ladies out there who learned to lead, what kind of experiences do you have? Do you mix steps up and suddenly do strange stuff when you follow, or is it no problem at all?
