Paso Doble is a dance derived from theatrical Spanish dance and Flamenco. The high drama dance is included in the Latin division of competitions. This dance is never taught in the social agenda nor would you ever expect to see it danced socially.
The nature of Paso Doble is passionate and arrogant as the dance depicts a Spanish bull fight with the man characterized as the matador and the lady as his cape. The dance is walking with moves that are sharp and quick. The gentleman accentuates one move called the apel that is a strong stamp of the foot, much as a matador strikes the ground in order to capture attention of the bull.
The killing of the bull (the Coup de Grace) by the matador should produce the end of the dance. This may be depicted in a number of dance styles with either the man or the lady assuming the role of the bull.
