Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Transmit tidings with twinkling toes thanks to today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a four-week salsa class from Salsa Des Moines (a $35 value).
Under the tutelage of experienced instructors, Salsa Des Moines's pupils learn an exciting mix of Latin street dances throughout four, once-a-week classes.

Pre-advanced and advanced levels allow more seasoned dancers to hone complex figures, intricate turn patterns, and the art of stomping out foot fires.
