Here is my best explanation:

'find' is the definition.
(discovering is a kind of finding)

'dance almost dead' is the wordplay.
'dance' becomes 'disco' (I've seen this before).
'almost' means to remove the first letter.
'dead' becomes 'over'.
'over' with its initial letter removed is 'ver'.
'disco'+'ver'='DISCOVER'
