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

Man who step back one in WCS, usually lead too!
If your follower isn't getting your lead, leading more forcefully is much more likely to cause her pain than to make your intent clear.
Great... sounds like we should add "in bed" to each aphorism.

Advice to leaders to me boils down to:

2) Have fun.
3) Don't grope.

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