More than $3 Million Awarded in 2022

thePANEL, exclusively held at REVEL Dance Convention's Nationals Finals is a unique opportunity for dancers to be seen by a large number of stakeholders in the dance and performing arts community.  These organizations include colleges, dance and talent agencies, employers, performance companies and training programs from all over the world.  Dancers participating in thePANEL have the opportunity to audition for tuition-based scholarships, conditional acceptance opportunities, agency meetings & representation, casting projects, intensives and other training opportunities.  During thePANEL, dancers will quickly learn ballet/contemporary, theatre jazz and jazz fusion combinations.  They will then be called out in rounds of smaller groups to audition in front of the various organizations comprising thePANEL.  Following thePANEL audition workshop, select dancers will be presented with awards during the Gala on the last day of Nationals.

There is no other event that offers dancers more access to such a diverse offering of professional & academic opportunities under one roof.  Your dancers will not want to miss thePANEL!
