Paso Doble

Pasodoble (Spanish: double-step) is a dance with a binary rhythm and moderated movement, probably based on typical Spanish dances of the 16th century. During the 18th century, it was incorporated to comedies and was adopted as a regulatory step for the Spanish infantry, with a special feature that makes the troops take the regular step: 120 steps per minute. The music was introduced in bullfights during the 19th century. It is played during the bullfighters’ entrance to the ring (paseo) or during the passes (faena) just before the kill. It corresponds to the pasodoble dance (traditional and ballroom).
