Atlanta Dance, Film and Culture

Looking for Things to Do of an arts, theatre or cultural bent? Look no more. We've created this Guide to the arts for you. We wanted to create a resource that would be equally useful to locals, visitors, and new residents, so this Atlanta City Guide contains everything from major attractions and annual events to interesting new restaurants and under-the-radar neighborhood hangouts.

Looking for gallery openings, plays, or shows? We have the best calendar in Atlanta for arts events. For reviews, articles and coverage of the arts scene, see arts in Atlanta.

Tango has about as many casual dancers as crystal meth has casual users. In Atlanta, the community either scares people off with the fanaticism of its members' devotion to the dance, or it seduces them with tango's sensual passion, forever ruining them for the superficial sugar buzz of salsa.
