Imagine the value of DTCB to our student Auditionees, with the ability to audition for dozens of different colleges & universities from across the country… all in one place. DTCB Auditions have not only generated over $13 million in scholarship for students, but they have also saved families thousands of dollars in travel expenses during their nerve-racking college search and audition season.
DTCB’s biggest attraction!
Our audition allows participating schools to audition up to 200 prospective students. In response to the changing government mandates, DTCB will host hybrid auditions in 2022.
Participating schools will have the opportunity to attend the virtual and in-person auditions live during the event. Participating schools will also have access to ALL materials from both the in-person and virtual auditions after the auditions have concluded.
To maintain the value of DTCB for both students and colleges, schools participating in the DTCB Audition Panel should have the ability to accept students into their dance program based on the DTCB audition.
PREPARING FOR THE AUDITION
Prior to the audition, participating schools will receive a list of students who wish to be considered for their program. Schools are welcome to consider all auditionees for their program. Leading up to the event, audition panel schools will also receive a detailed Audition Database featuring a profile of each graduating senior Auditionee that will include:
Auditionee high school name & location
Every participating school is permitted 1 panelist to attend the auditions. Even though the auditions will be recorded and shared, we highly encourage panelists to attend the auditions live to provide both college representatives and auditionees with an authentic audition experience. Auditions will be recorded and shared.
Participating schools will also have access to ALL materials from both the in-person and virtual auditions no longer than a week after the auditions have concluded.
Panelists will be welcomed into the space by DTCB organizers approximately 30 minutes before the start of the audition.
There will be three separate hour-long in-person auditions, each hosting 40 dancers.
Both the adagio and modern combinations will be performed in groups of 10.
Panelists will be welcomed into the virtual waiting room by DTCB organizers approximately 15 minutes before the start of the audition.
There will be four separate hour-long virtual auditions, each hosting 16 dancers.
Teaching Artists will be streamed live from the Dancewave Center and students will participate virtually in their preferred space. Both the adagio and modern combinations will be performed in spotlight groups of 8.
