Here's an excerpt from a blog post on tango leader / follower responsibilities (blog post by David Phillips in Tangolio). 

It's a concise breakdown of the tango fundamentals that dictate every move in tango and are essential to good tango dancing.

Leader
  1. Care for the safety and comfort of your partner and other dancers.
  2. Know at all times which leg your partner has free (the one that didn’t step last).
  3. Give your partner time to respond to your movement suggestions.
Follower
  1. Care for the safety and comfort of your partner and other dancers.
  2. Keep your weight clearly over your last step, with your other leg free to move.
  3. Give your partner time to make their movement suggestions known to you.
