Recognized by their peers for outstanding achievements throughout the year, we honor excellence across 16 categories and nominated by the People, along with Life-Time Achievement Awards procured by the DCBX Selection Committee.

The Global Experience is the celebration of Cultures by all who impact lives through the passion & energy of Music, Dance, & Community involvement!
