We could even start making up our own DF of "Dance Confucious" like this one I just made up . . .

Great... sounds like we should add "in bed" to each aphorism.

Advice to leaders to me boils down to:
1) Stay on time.
2) Have fun.
3) Don't grope.

As for the art of leading...
Leading involves maximal suggestion with minimal force.
