International Style Latin Paso Doble
  
Brief Description
 
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. 
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. 
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.
