Unfortunately I have not yet find a regular partner with whom I can really work hard at developing very good following skills, at developing a good connection, and at developing a good sense of musicality. Of course I had the "occasional beautiful tango experience" with some good leaders but there is no continuity. So as a new challenge I have decided to go back to basics and learn to become a LEADER while I am still searching for the right dancing partner.  

If it helps you feel the lead by knowning how to lead then that has to be a good thing. It is the same with leaders learning to follow. The only problem I can think of is the same as if the leader started becoming lazy in the lead due to the want to follow. 

Eg. I am already trying to break the habit of closing my eyes while dancing! I have now got it down to small opportune moments. 

I am all for understanding more about the dance in whatever way. 
Whether this ever translates into putting on a pair of heels...
