It is certain, though, that it originated in Andalusia during the time period when Spain was under Arab domination. Between 1765 and 1860 there became schools that taught this dance, which made it popular in the ballroom. From 1910 to 1955 easier music was played for this dance. By 1915 there were performances of this dance all over the world.
