General Principles

Post  mpr9b on Tue Sep 07, 2010 9:39 pm

So it seems that the latin section hasn't been receiving much attention, so I thought I'd post something.

Name general principles/characteristics of the Paso Doble. I know very little about this dance, so I'll just start with a few basic ones:

Keep your feet in front of your body. This puts paso more in the field of standard than latin in foot to body position. But in the paso doble you still extend up and present into your partner. Thee feet in front of you allows you to utilize your entire body sequentially to present yourself, often beginning low in the ankles, through the legs, and up through the torso.

In opposition to most other latin actions, you are permitted to take a step with a heel lead. This permits a lowering action and again fosters the presentation through the entire body. Not all steps should be taken with heels, but you are able to use them to establish contrast.
