- Are registered DTCB schools only from the East Coast?
No! DTCB officially became an international dance college fair in 2019! You will have the opportunity to connect with schools from across the United States and United Kingdom. The LIVE 30-minute college fair Q&A session schedule (streaming from October 12-21) will cater to the various time zones for our school partners and YOU!
- I would like to attend as many LIVE 30-minute college fair Q&A sessions as I can with my child October 12- 21. When will we know the assigned dates and times for registered schools?
The DTCB 2021 schedule will be published by Friday, September 17; 2-weeks before the event app launches. It will include the assigned dates and times for each college/university’s LIVE 30-minute college fair Q&A sessions. You are welcome to adjust your schedule to attend all fairs or only schools of interest. You will also be able to add event programming sessions to your event app profile agenda beginning October 1.
- I know the finalized schedule will be provided in September, but can you give me an idea of when the 30-minute LIVE college fair Q&A sessions will be held? Is attendance required?
School registration will end on August 31. The college fair 30-minute Q&A sessions will be streaming LIVE October 12-21. Attendance and participation in the Q&A are strongly encouraged, but not required. Fair recordings will be uploaded to the app by October 22.

- What should graduating seniors do to network with the Colleges/Universities in the app?
DTCB is the only event of its kind to provide networking, college admissions and scholarship auditions in one event! As a graduating senior, DTCB provides an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about individual programs, meet college faculty and get all of your questions answered in order to help you make the best decision for your future. Dancewave strongly recommends that you actively engage with the Community Board throughout the event, participate in the College Fairs (don’t be shy, ask questions!), and make sure that you represent yourself positively in your profile. Schools are seeking talented dancers for their 2022-2023 season, and DTCB is your opportunity to shine! Be sure to upload your most recent resume and fill out the job application form provided in the virtual school booths. The Whova event app will also grant you the option to make your resume public to all DTCB 2021 schools or to remain private.
Each school will notify you about the application requirements and type of characteristics they are seeking in a prospective student. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to apply to the college/university itself before DTCB’s event app opens on October 1. Note that all colleges and universities will require general admission in order to guarantee admission to the respective school/department.
- What should underclassmen do to network with the colleges/universities in the app?
Underclassmen are strongly encouraged to attend as many LIVE 30-minute college fair Q&A sessions possible between October 12-21 and actively participate in the Community Board school discussions beginning October 1.
*To help the colleges navigate through hundreds of “job” submissions through their virtual booth in the app, underclassmen must not request additional information from schools of interest until October 25.
Graduating seniors will be contacting schools of interest October 1-24. It will be easier for colleges and universities to filter through submissions if underclassmen submit their information after the main event. Please know, your interest in their dance program will be taken seriously and the schools admissions office will send promotional materials via email or postage mailing.
- Is the DTCB booth “job” application equivalent to the application on the college/university websites?
No! Dancewave is not associated with any of the school’s admissions departments. Our job is to create the platform for you to connect directly with decision makers and to have the guarantee to be seen and heard by decision makers for some of the top dance programs in the world. DTCB 2021 seniors must complete each college/university's application instructions on their websites separately.
*Auditionees only need to complete the basic application on the school’s website to qualify for the DTCB audition. Unless advised otherwise by a school on the audition panel at a later date, the auditionee will not need to attend the school’s audition on campus or audition separately online.
- Why is it important to contact the schools?
Colleges/Universities LOVE to learn who is interested in their program out of hundreds of DTCB attendees. The colleges will send all attendees interested in their program additional information via email or postage mail.
