Performance

All things performing arts.

While our directory is only just getting started, this is what we have planned for the theme of Performance:

We want to help you find the live performances that are going on in your area. We want you to discover new bands, new plays and new operas. We want to showcase the work of dancers, choreographers, composers and the many other types of artists who make the performing arts exciting. We want to give you ideas for theatres and music venues to visit. And we want to help you find supplies related to the performing arts, be it a record, a musical instrument, a play script or dance shoes.
