The Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) touches audiences and helps cultivate a strong artistic community through classic and contemporary shows. Under the direction of former Roswell native Don Farrell, GET's professional troupe of ribald line readers will perform a greatest-hits version of Forbidden Broadway, a Tony Honors–award recipient in 2006. For nearly three decades, audiences have sought treatment for excessively slapped knees and busted guts prompted by this constantly changing production's send up of the popular tunes and plot lines of Broadway shows past and present. Harmonizing humorists draw theater-goers to the edge of their orchestra seats with a medley of songs that roast The Lion King, Annie, Wicked, and other hits from the Great White Way.

At Jones Dance Ballroom Studios, dancers of all skill levels teach their bodies to spin, shake, and shiver with the self-expressing movements of multiple dance styles, including tango, foxtrot, salsa, samba, West Coast swing, paso doble, merengue, and beyond. Up-and-coming motion maestros can begin their journey to stardom and dancing with a pair of private lessons ($37.50 each). During both of the half-hour twinkle-toe tutorials, a skilled, supportive instructor will work one-on-one with you and carefully teach your feet how to woo the haughty ground with the stately swirls of a Viennese waltz, the dazzling blur of the quickstep, or the swiveling bobble-hips of the cha-cha. Once they've learned how to light up the dance floor with controlled-burn fires, students can showcase their sizzling steps to new dance partners during a 60-minute group class ($15; check the calendar for more information about specific classes and times).
