Dancing is the second-best way to let the body do the talking, just short of being born with a secondary mouth in the palm of your hand. Elegantly express yourself with today's Groupon: for $12, you get four drop-in dance classes at Avanti Ballroom (a $28 value).
Dance mavens James and Victoria Stowell conduct a full schedule of dance classes that conform to DVIDA and ISTD training syllabi in one of the biggest ballrooms in Colorado Springs. Students of any skill level can shimmy and groove their way across the studio's more than 3,500 square feet of combined dance-floor space during ballroom and Zumba sessions. Just as Dakotans divide into east and west factions, swing classes break apart into East Coast and West Coast camps. Salsa lessons similarly divvy up their attendees, staging separate meetings for beginner, intermediate, and advanced dancers. The studio's fully digital sound system floods dance floors with the melodies of the waltz, the tango, and the foxtrot, inspiring precisely executed gyrations without a Twister mat.
