Controversy surrounds the origin of this dance. On the one hand, ballroom dance experts generally accept that it was the invention of a Spanish teacher, Desire, who introduced it to Paris in about 1953. On the other hand, folk-dance writers assume a Scandinavian folk origin. Two versions of the tune were wedded together by Ashley Hutchings, the first from Harry Cockerill of Askrigg, Yorkshire, and the second from Hereford fiddler Stephen Baldwin.
