International Style Latin Paso Doble
Paso Doble literally translated means Two Step. Makes
sense that it is danced in 2/4 timing. 60 - 62 Bars or
120 - 124 Beats per minute. Though most variations
are danced in sequences of 4, 8 or 16. The first beat is
accented and a definite step taken by the dancer.
Once the music starts you are automatically
transported to Spain. The Paso Doble is another dance
that is mainly danced in competitions, though it is
danced more socially on the continent. Originating
from Spain it depicts the drama enacted in the bullring,
where the man is seen as the matador and the lady
depicts the cape. The film ‘Strictly Ballroom’ has an
excellent Paso Doble.
