College Fair Panels

Simulating an in-person event experience, DTCB Virtual College Fair Panels gives you the chance to interact with College Fair Representatives and get details about each program. Questions will be facilitated during group Q&A, live polls and breakout sessions with each school.

Peer-to-Peer Panels

Peer-to-Peer Panels give students the chance to hear from current students and alumni from our participating schools. Hear about their impressions of the dance program’s culture, campus life, and the little details you might not have thought to ask about.
