Island Moving Company is pleased to host The Actors Fund, a national organization that has long-supported the dance community in managing the unique demands of a life in dance. To assist dancers during and post-career, The Dancers’ Resource and Career Transition For Dancers programs offer the following services:

  • Career development and management
  • Health, wellness, and support for injured dancers
  • Emergency Financial Assistance & Scholarships

The Actors Fund will introduce their free and confidential services available to the dance community. And to better serve you, they want to hear from YOU about the challenges of being a dance artist in Rhode Island.

This session is meant for professional dancers, dance artists, college students, pre-professional dancers, those considering career transition, and anyone interested in learning about what The Actors Fund offers.

Come to mingle and network, share your problems, and hear new ideas.

Dancers of all disciplines and career paths are welcome!
