This is an invaluable concept - that your left side (left side of the frame, male or female) is 'yours'.  Its not that you can do anything you like in there, perhaps it should be put more accurately that its your responsibility.  Of course you have to pay attention to your right side too - in particular your hand contact - but there you are more responding than active.  Thus the lady creates and maintains the space between the couple and her position on the left.  This gives the man confidence as to her location and security - and that she will readily respond.  That liberation will make the dancing more active and more confident.  The left side for the man is his window to movement and leading - and the hand contact is critical there since its his only physical contact between the couple that is dynamic and always maintained.
