Dance 411 Studios' instructors pause from stints as featured dancers in music videos, choreographers for award shows, and appearing on ?So You Think You Can Dance? to helm the studio?s dance classes. The studio hosts a full range of traditional youth dance courses, with styles ranging from ballet and tap to hip-hop and breakdance. Instructors also bring these styles to adults through the Foundations program, which teaches dance (and fitness) fundamentals through classes including Salsa Fit, Step Aerobics, and Ballet Stretch. The studio is also home to the Ladies Liberation program; built around classes such as Twerk-Fit, Lap Dance, and Pole Dancing, the program helps women get in shape while accessing their sensual sides.
At Out of Hand Theater, the audience isn't just a passive crowd—the audience is a collaborator. Whether engaging their fans with new plays from local writers or staging elaborate public art performances such as The Break Up—a two-minute romance between an actor and anyone else—Out of Hand Theater makes the audience carry their emotional weight. They also host the Game, an interactive scavenger hunt that sends participants off to crack codes and solve puzzles all over the city. The Game is never quite what it seems: clues participants seek might be hiding in a realistic staged scene or on a strangely animated-looking statue.

Horizon Theatre Company is one of Atlanta’s longest-running small theaters, with a devoted following of season ticketholders. Located in the heart of Little Five Points, it is convenient to several local restaurants like The Vortex, but if you skip dinner before the show you can always indulge in one of the theater’s giant cookie-dough cookies. This company is known for comedic favorites like The Waffle Palace and David Sedaris’ The Santaland Diaries; these productions return year after year and are always popular. The shows also include offerings for the younger set like Madeline’s Christmas, as well as more adult-focused works by local writers, like Third Country and The Book Club Play. Seating is general admission, with certain sections reserved for subscribers. But the Horizon Theatre Company is intimate enough that there really isn’t a bad spot in the house.
