Team Two – Jan and Joseph

Through your tax-deductible contribution to Georgia Metropolitan Dance Theatre, you enable the theatre, a 501(c)(3) organization, to continue its mission – to encourage and foster the development of confidence, poise, discipline, and positive self expression in its students through the proper and traditional instruction of the art of dance.  Your donations make our work possible, and we are grateful for your continued support.

Jan Galt is the daughter of Jean Lindsey Galt and Jabez Galt and a true Marietta Native. Jan is a graduate of Marietta High School as were both of her parents and one grandfather. After graduating from LaGrange College in 1983, Jan went to work in her family’s business, Lindsey-Galt Furniture. When the business closed in July of 2001, Jan found a new career at the Marietta Museum of History. Upon joining the Museum staff she was primarily responsible for the bookkeeping and the gift shop. She is now the Executive Director of the Museum. Jan is proud of the growth that the Museum and its staff have achieved over the past several years. Visitation has increased to over 15,000 people per year, and there are over 35,000 pieces in the collection, which is worth over $6.5 million. Jan’s favorite saying about the Museum is that it is “a place where everything is old and there is always something new.”

Joseph Goldstein is the incoming councilman for Marietta Ward 7 and is the owner and manager of JRG 30 Whitlock Avenue, LLC. He recently graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law and also has a B.B.A. in Real Estate from the University of Georgia Terry College of Business. He has lived in Marietta his entire life and graduated from Marietta High School in 2011. While he does not have much dancing experience, Joseph did participate in both the Marietta High School Marching Band and the University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band. He hopes those experiences will at least help him keep a beat.
