The Fandango is a very expressive dance which is believed to have originated in Spain around the early 1700s. Experts of the Fandango are, however, in disagreement over the dance's true origin. It expresses the passion of the dancers. The two dancers often taunt each other by following their steps or by using gestures. A Fandango between two men is often a kind of dance-off, a competition of the dancers' skills. In this version, the first dancer creates the rhythm and steps and the second dancer then uses that rhythm to perform a more elaborate dance. It is almost like a dispute with both dancers trying to out-do each other. The word Fandango is therefore synonymous with 'a quarrel' or 'an argument'.
