Ballroom Paso Doble

Paso doble is a Spanish dance style which imitates bullfighting. The leader of the dance imitates the bullfighter while the follower imitates the cape of the bullfighter.

Although a Spanish dance, Paso doble originally developed in France, and many steps therefore have French names. The Spanish background of the dance is evident in the dance style, which share many characteristics with flamenco. Paso doble is mostly danced at competitions and performances because of it strictly choreographed moves and its theatrical nature
