The Rhode Island Independent Performance Network runs an email list which lists local auditions and job opportunities. In addition RI²PN and its individual members are often looking for dancers/performers for their own concerts.
List members can post performance announcements, teaching and performing opportunities and other items of interest to those involved in dance, puppetry, costuming and theatre in the Rhode Island area. RiDance posts some of them, but many are last minute and go out only by email.
