DTCB 2019: Registration for High School Students
Student Registration to attend the College Fair, Workshops and Classes is still OPEN! (for all high schoolers)
Dancewave 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, Dancewave 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).
