About the Instructor, Penne Gatton

Penne started her Salsa diet 8 years ago and has enjoyed her involvement with Salsa Des Moines (SDM) ever since.  She has taught various levels of Salsa and Cumbia/Rueda classes offered throughout the DSM metro and has performed with several SDM and other dance studios' performance teams.


"We travel a great deal and one of my main focuses is to find a salsa venue.  We have met many fellow salseros and enjoy the differences that we observe, but value the mentality that all have, and that is the great love and passion that we all experience from this dance."  


She looks forward to developing this love of the dance and community involvement with every new Latin dance class she instructs.
