There is no dance in the world that is more Spanish than a pasodoble. Its origin goes back to the old military marches that took place in the sixteenth century. This musical piece is danced as a couple, and it has a very simple rhythm to learn. The two dancers stand facing each other with their bodies slightly tilted towards the left moving to the rhythm of the music. The most well-known pasodoble is called "Paquito el Chocolatero". Paquito was a very cheerful man who [he] lived in el Levante, and his brother-in-law dedicated a piece of music to him that had his name. Today it is the pasodoble that is listened to the most at all the popular Spanish festivals.

Clever stuff happening!
