DTCB 2018: Registration for Colleges & Professional Dance Programs
Dancing through College & Beyond (DTCB) is a unique nationwide event, attended by over 300 high school students and parents annually. Providing a much-needed service to college dance programs and to high school students and their families, Dancing Through College & Beyond offers the opportunity to connect, one-on-one, with renowned faculty from colleges across the country. This event helps students fully explore college dance opportunities and assists them in navigating the college admissions process. This year, DTCB will be held at Hunter College: The City University of New York (695 Park Ave, New York, NY 10065).
To see our offerings for this year, please see the registration form at the bottom of this page!

Colleges that attend DTCB have the opportunity to:
  • Meet students one-on-one at the DTCB College Fair. Last year nearly 300 students and parents attended (from over 15 states and Canada).
  • Showcase their school’s dance department at Saturday’s performance showcase (fee applicable if accepted).
  • Present at a panel (if selected). Previous panels for students have included Careers in Dance, Injury Prevention, Nutrition, and Financial Aid.
  • Provide current college students or recent alums to participate in peer-to-peer meetings with high school seniors.
  • Sit in on an audition panel to view 120 high school seniors for your dance program.*

Notes for 2018
* Programs participating in the audition panel must have the ability to accept students into their dance program based on this audition. To date, $3 million worth of scholarships have been offered to students that attended DTCB auditions. Please consider potential scholarships opportunities based on the audition. There will be a limited number of panel positions available as we strive to increase the value of this experience for the schools, and the students. The participation fee permits ONE faculty member to watch the three college auditions.
**College check-in for DTCB 2018 will begin at 10:00 AM and a representative must be at your table by 11:00 AM, prepared to greet students. Due to increased attendance, all materials should stand on top of your table. No floor stands will be permitted. For electronic devices, please be prepared with battery power as no outlet use is guaranteed.
