Celebrating the 10th Annual DTCB as a Live Virtual Event Co-presented by Dance Magazine

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. 

Proud to be one of very few college dance fairs responding to the COVID-19 crisis, Dancewave has adapted its professional networking event virtually, providing a web-based platform for its College Fair, coveted Auditions, educational panels/workshops, live movement classes and more. Join attendees from across the U.S. and beyond during our dynamic social distance event, and let our experts launch your college dance journey.

Academically, high school juniors and seniors have perhaps been hit the hardest by COVID-19. Those committed to pursuing dance may feel more vulnerable than ever. DTCB remains steadfast as a trusted institution designed to empower and inform college-bound dancers with relevant skills that they need to succeed in college and in their exciting careers beyond.




“My daughter had an absolutely amazing experience with Dancewave… She was able to get accepted into all the [dance degree program] schools she applied to without even having to go on campus—and has even gotten scholarship money from some schools as well! Such an amazing program and an amazing way to kick off audition season!”

— Nannette F. – Parent of DTCB 2019 Auditionee
