“The Paso Doble was originally a light Spanish music with a binary rhythm and moderated movement, presumably based on typical Spanish dances of the 16th century. This traditional couple's dance originated in France and was then adopted in Spain and Portugal.

Because of its inherently choreographed tradition, Ballroom Paso Doble is danced only with a previously learned routine.

This said, in Spain, France, Vietnam, Colombia, Costa Rica and some parts of Germany, it is danced socially as a lead and follow (not choreographed) dance. In Venezuela, the Paso Doble is almost a must-have dance at weddings and big parties, being especially famous by the song "Guitarra Española" by Los Melódicos.

In Competitive Dance, the modern Paso Doble is part of a program of five dances, including the Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, and Jive. They are called the International Latin Dances of Ballroom Dancing.

Technique

The Paso Doble is one of the most dramatic of all the Latin dances. It is a progressive dance in which dancers take strong steps forward with the heels, and incorporate artistic hand movements. The forward steps, or walks, should be strong and proud.

The man should also incorporate the apel, a move in which he strongly stamps his foot, much like a matador strikes the ground in order to capture the attention of the bull. All moves of the Paso Doble should be sharp and quick, with the chest and head held high to represent arrogance and dignity.

Music

The music of the Paso Doble has strong Flamenco influences. The bold, inspiring music has a simple 1-2-1-2 march rhythm, with very few rhythm changes. The tempo of Paso Doble music is usually 120-124 beats per minute, 60 measures per minute. “
