Dancing Through College and Beyond 2012 is a full day of networking, information and panels to help high school students, teachers, and parents of students navigate dancing in college from applications through graduation.
Free for all participants, the panels will bring together over 25 college admissions representatives, college professors, career counselors, alumni and even parents of dance program alums to give you their expert advice on how to get into the program that's right for you, make the most of all that the school has to offer and prepare for a successful career post-graduation.
This is one-stop shopping to meet many representatives from top dance programs in and around New York City and more. The first of its kind in New York City, this symposium is not-to-be-missed for all serious dance students, parents and teachers.
