What to expect as a student attendee

DTCB is the only event of its kind to provide networking, college admissions and scholarship auditions in one event! Our event 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!

Underclassmen are strongly encouraged to attend DTCB as well. 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. 

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. 

For auditionees: Submitting your audition assignments is only 50% of the experience. To make yourself known to the schools you must engage as much as possible in the event app. Dancewave will also offer educational workshops, panels, and dance masterclasses for attendees to benefit from.  

The DTCB audition has always saved families around the world vast amounts of money in travel expenses, because graduating seniors have the unique opportunity to audition for 25+ top college dance programs worldwide at once. Most schools on the audition panel will accept the DTCB audition for program acceptance decisions and scholarship offers. A very small percentage of program directors may request to see more of certain candidates to help them make a decision. 

*Auditionees should expect to hear about program acceptance and scholarship considerations from the DTCB 2021 Audition panel by May 2022 at the latest.

Dancewave will provide the panel your auditionee #, video submissions, headshot, resume, and detailed contact information in a password-protect auditionee database. For security reasons this site will only be accessible to the registered audition panel.
