In your Vaughan Paso Doble lessons, you’ll learn that musical interpretation is a must in the classic Paso Doble. All the drama of the Bullfight can be felt with every passing step as the matador, portrayed by the man, and the cape, portrayed by the female, twist, turn and pass in a unified manner to elude the threat of the bull. Sound passionate? It is!

History of Paso Doble

The Paso Doble, which actually originated in southern France, tells the story of the Spanish Bullfight with the man as the matador and the woman his cape. Paso Doble means “double step” in Spanish which refers to the marching nature of the steps.

Characteristics of Paso Doble Ballroom Dancing

Vaughan residents are often interested in learning about elements of the dance. The Paso Doble is a progressive Latin dance in that its forward steps are taken with heel leads, the frame is wider and kept in a more strict upward fashion, and there is dramatically less hip movement than other Latin dances. The figures of the modern day Paso Doble represent the passes and movements of a matador, but have also incorporated the Flamenco style and rhythms.

Paso Doble Music

Paso Doble music has a double time, march-like, rhythm. Most Paso Doble songs are variants of Espana Cani, the Spanish Gypsy Dance. Traditionally Paso Doble routines are choreographed to match the crescendos in the music and the musical phrasing.
