Providing a much-needed service to the dance industry and to high school students, DTCB offers talented young dancers the opportunity to connect, one-on-one, with renowned faculty and choreographers from colleges across the country, forming personal connections between the current generation of leading dance professionals and the next. This event helps students fully explore college dance opportunities and to assist them in navigating the college admissions process.

DTCB includes audition and scholarship opportunities for eligible students, plus FREE college fair, panels, workshops, and more to prospective college students seeking continued education in dance.
