Where Did Bolero Start?
Where did Bolero start? Firstly, there are two boleros. One is from Spain and the other Cuban. They are often mixed up but they are different, so be sure not to put your foot in your mouth. Bolero originated in Spain in the late 1700s for ballet and has become a staple in ballroom music. Since the genre of music began with dancing in mind, we have to love that. Cuban Bolero is part of the trova tradition.
“In Spain, during the 18th Century, the Bolero actually had many different names. It was called ‘Escuela Bolera’, ‘Baile de Palillos’ and ‘Goyescas’. Bolero originated as a fusion of popular dances and classical ballet in order to produce a dance that was fit for shows, and not just for fiestas. “ SpanishArt.org
