Thank you to everyone who attended DTCB 2021! We are so excited for what your futures hold!

Dancewave Through College & Beyond (DTCB) is a unique nationwide event, serving hundreds of high school students annually. Providing a much-needed service to the dance industry and to high school students, DTCB offers talented young dancers the opportunity to connect with renowned faculty from colleges across the country.

Traditionally held on an NYC college campus with nearly 1000 attendees, this inspiring event helps high school students fully explore college dance opportunities and to assist them in navigating the college admissions process. 

Dancewave is proud to partner with Dance Magazine to bring you our virtual college fair for the 3rd year in a row

Proud to be the only college fair to respond to the challenges of the 2020 health crisis, Dancewave adapted its coveted professional networking event to a virtual setting, providing a web-based platform for its College Fair, high demand Auditions, educational panels/workshops, live movement classes and more. 

For 11 years, the DTCB audition has helped generate over $13 million in college scholarships for thousands of young dance recipients from around the world.

“As a parent and a college counselor for a performing arts high school for over 25 years, I was impressed with the organization and use of technology to pull together this opportunity for dance students. My daughter and students gained a wealth of knowledge and had a wonderful experience. We will attend again. Joel Diamond, College Counselor, Las Vegas Academy of the Arts
