  • Yo Gabba Gabba Live
    The hit Nickelodeon children’s program Yo Gabba Gabba! bounds from the small screen to the big stage in a show filled with cartoonish critters and boundless dancing. Beloved by hip preschoolers and savvy postschoolers for its eye-popping sets, catchy songs, respect for intellect, and absence of Shrek, Yo Gabba Gabba! teaches inner and outer children valuable life lessons without stooping to condescension. For the special It’s Time to Dance! tour, favorite adorable toy monsters such as Brobee, Foofa, Plex, and Biz Markie join human surrogates DJ Lance Rock and BeDazzler queen Leslie Hall for an onstage celebration of imagination. Mixing animation, games, and new songs with classic bits from the television show, the Technicolor mise en scène and infectious energy of Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! gives children enough confidence to apply to college after elementary school.

  • Florida Grand Opera
    According to the Florida Grand Opera's Brendan Glynn, "If Verdi says to put in 20 violins, we do." Such dedication to the details has kept patrons coming back to FGO for 73 seasons, making it the seventh oldest opera company in the U.S.?and garnering the seventh largest audiences in the country. Split between two waterfront venues in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, its world-class performances draw in tens of thousands of Florida residents each year. The box office has also logged ticket buyers from 39 states and 31 foreign countries, as well as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Washington, DC, signaling their reputation's international reach. In 2013-2014, FGO's talented casts will sound the notes of Marvin David Levy's Mourning Becomes Electra, Giuseppe Verdi's Nabucco, Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, and Jules Massenet's Thais. As intimidating as grand opera can seem to the uninitiated, the FGO eases introductions with a lively Twitter feed, a candid Facebook wall, and even its own iPhone app, which helps newbies get up to speed on opera's lurid centuries of love, lust, murder, and suicide. The FGO's FAQ page similarly dispels common misconceptions, revealing that you may wear jeans to the opera and that wearing 3D glasses won't actually improve your experience.

  • Cycle Party- Fort Lauderdale
    Imagine a party on a bicycle built for 15, and you've got yourself a Cycle Party. The large, pedal-powered land-craft seats up to 15 passengers (10 pedalers, 5 coasters) that wheel their way around Fort Lauderdale Beach. A trained company driver operates the steering wheel and brakes during the two-hour minimum outing, while riders listen to music and come up with the agenda for the night. The vehicle often hits the streets for Cycle Party pub-crawls, which takes groups around to 3 participating restaurants and bars. During these 20-minute stopovers, guests can flash their VIP wristbands for access to drink specials, and to avoid lines and cover charges.

  • Ultimate Florida Tours
    Segway Fort Lauderdale owner Johnathan Rosen views Segways as about as simple to get the hang of as walking (he's seen clients ages 5 to 92 master them). On these jaunts of Fort Lauderdale, groups roll through scenic areas, visit piers, and take optional jaunts down back alleys. There, they can try out their Segways' top speed?roughly 12.5 mph, about as fast as a cheetah wearing substantial ankle weights. As participants roll along, guides can share tidbits about the comings and goings of area celebrities in the area and the Segway's history. There's also plenty of time for participants to talk amongst themselves while a company photographer snaps complimentary action shots.

  • MUSE Center for the Arts
    MUSE stands for "mastering unique self expression"—a common experience for students at the MUSE Center for the Arts, where they show off their creativity in dance, music, and theater classes. Its instructors, who come from a variety of arts backgrounds, have extensive résumés, including dancing with choreographer Twyla Tharp's company, performing at the Metropolitan Opera House, and specializing in stage combat. Both children and adults learn styles such as jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary in dance classes, and skilled kids aged 6–18 can try out for MUSE's competitive dance team. Musicians can further their craft in private or group lessons available for a variety of instruments, including voice, guitar, and violin. And the theater season is divided into school-year and summer sessions, where young Broadway hopefuls learn how to sing, dance, and write a quippy Playbill bio.
