Paso Doble

“Paso Doble” means “two-step” in Spanish, and there is a Spanish flavour to the whole dance. Representing a bull-fight, the man is a matador and the woman his cape. The moves can be showy, but the basic steps follow a 1-2 1-2 marching rhythm that can be easily picked up and enjoyed on a social floor.
