• Is a strong lowering through the Right foot and leg accompanied by the approprppriate lead for figure being danced
• Footwork is Ball Flat
• To indicate a turn to PP, the man's left arm is tracked: lowered to chest level and Left wrist rotated right (clockwise); this is commenced during preceeding beat

24. Sur Place, Precedes
• Sur Place is a linking movement, used to join one figure to the next
• Two counts (one bar) may be used to enable the next figure to start on the first beat of a musical phrase
• If the preceding figure is finished with man's weight on Right Foot, the Sur Place will commence on the man's Left Foot
25. Sur Place, Follows

26. Sur Place, Alignment

27. Sur Place, Notes
• Note 1:
• Provides and opportunityy to build up kinetic energy in preparation for the following figure, particularly one started with an Appel
• in this instance, a rotation of the pelvis to the man's right (lady's left) will occur without changing foot or shoulder position
• This pelvic rotation is started on the firts step and continued on each step of the Sur Place (usually over 4 or 8 beats)
• Note 2:

58. Expalin Time Signature
• The Paso Doble time signature is 2/4
• where the first number denotes the number of beats in a bar, and
• the second number denotes the value of those beats (i.e. 4 = 4 quarters of a note = crotchet)
59. Explain Rhythm
• Rhythm is the regular occurence of an accented beat or beats in the music
• it gives character to the music and dance
• its signature, how we recognise the dance
• in Paso Doble there are no percussive accents but there is a musical accent on beat 1
60. Explain Tempo
• tempo is the speed at which the music is played
• defined in bars per minute (sometimes beats per minute)
• for Paso Doble this is 60/62 bars per minute (= 120/124 beats)
61. Explain Timing and Beat Value
• Timing is the way we count the passing of the music to ourselves and our pupils
• Helps us identify and control when things happen in the dance
• For Paso Doble the timing is 1, 2 where we step on each number
• However, most figures in Paso Doble consist of more than two steps, which can lead to overly complicated counting
• To overcome this, an acceptable alternative is to count the number of steps in the figure (i.e 1-4, 1-8 or 1-16)
62. Describe the Paso Doble Poise

• The left arm is raised with the left hand, wrist straight, is held at approximately head height
• His left hand gently holds the lady's right hand on an imaginary line between the two bodies
• The ladys left hand is placed gently on the man's right shoulder
• Her left arm rests lightly on the man's right arm, following the same curve.
• From Close Hold both dancers turn outward, man to left, lady to right
• Man's left hand, lady's right, is lowered to just below shoulder height
• Man's right arm is forward, slightly retracted just below shoulder level and hand positioned at the top of the lady's left arm
• When both dancers are moving in PP, body contact is lost and the couple are approximately 10" (25cm) apart
• There are some figures where man and lady do not use normally opposite foot positions, although the couple do not move together in PP, foot positions are given as "in PP"
• From Close Hold both dancers turn outward, man to right, lady to left
• Man's left hand, lady's right, is raised above the head, elbow slightly retracted
