Paso Doble

After nagging my teacher for a long time, we started learning the Paso Doble tonight. It’s the spanish dance in which the man represents a matador and the woman a cape. In theory it looks like this:

Ours doesn’t look like that 🙂 But it does involve stamping, and is excellent fun. Most other people in our group looked rather nervous when the teacher announced what we were doing, but I think they all enjoyed it in the end. They did make me wear somebody’s coat as a cape as punishment, however, which was ok with me – it swooped!

I think I could wangle a cape and a hat if I got good enough at the Paso Doble. This is in fact my ultimate goal. Any excuse to wear a cape and a hat.
