  1. paso doble

    Pasodoble (Spanish: double step) is a fast-paced Spanish military march used by infantry troops. Its speed allowed troops to give 120 steps per minute (double the average of a regular unit, hence its name). This military march gave rise recently to a modern Spanish dance, a musical genre including both voice and instruments, and a genre of instrumental music often played during bullfight. Both the dance and the non martial compositions are also called pasodoble.


  1. paso doble

    Paso Doble is a lively style of dance that originated in Spain and is modeled after the sound, drama, and movement of the Spanish bullfight. The dance is usually performed in binary rhythm with the man portraying the matador and the woman portraying the cape, bull, or matador's partner. The term "Paso Doble" literally translates to "double step" in Spanish. This dance is also popular in competitive dance circuits.
