This sounds strange to me. Firstly, if you lead something and the 
your partner does what you led - how can she be anticipating? 
Secondly, if she's doing what you led her to do, how can she be 
pulling on you since you're leading her with your body? 

As I understand the phrase ... "I lead, she steps and I follow her.",
it means I lead with my torso and our torsos move together, but I
follow with my feet. Obviously, your feet have to follow your torso,
otherwise it might feel like she's pulling you off balance.
