Paso Doble Timing: 2/4 (2 beats per bar)

Paso Doble Tempo: 60 Bars per minute

The Paso Doble is the dance of the Spanish bullfighter. It symbolises the battle between man and beast and portrays the man in a very macho image. The woman portrays the flowing action of the cape as the man does battle with the bull.

The music is distinctly Spanish in it's origin and there is a definite flamenco style to the Paso Doble. Although fun to dance the Paso Doble has limited use as a social dance.

The Paso Doble is one of the five dances danced in International Latin competitions. Most recently it will have been seen in the UK on the hit BBC TV series Strictly Come Dancing.
