Aerowaves: Open Call for Dance Artists for Aerowaves Twenty24

Aerowaves logo - name beside a flow of curving lines.

Each year the Aerowaves network selects 20 of the most promising emerging choreographers in Europe. Aerowaves promotes their work for a year, creating opportunities to perform with their partners. Choreographers apply to the programme with a short, finished work.

Everyone who applies to Aerowaves has the chance to have their work programmed by the partners of the network, whether or not they are selected as Aerowaves artists. Around 100 performance opportunities are guaranteed by the partners and supported by Aerowaves each year.

Should you be selected as one of the Aerowaves Twenty, your work will be promoted by Aerowaves via its website for one year by an artist profile, with images, video and press coverage all in one place. You may also be selected to perform your work at the next Spring Forward Festival, and by Aerowaves partners around Europe.

Eligibility requirements include:

  • You must be resident in geographical Europe to apply. Due to the exceptional situation caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Aerowaves partners have decided to not accept applications of works made in Russia and Belarus.
  • You may apply with only one work per year.
  • The work you are submitting must have been produced in geographical Europe.
  • Aerowaves is a platform for short works – your work must be 15-40 minutes in length.
  • Your work must be finished and have been presented to the public which can include a studio sharing – work in progress or rehearsal footage are not eligible.
  • Your work should be easily included in a double or triple bill and have simple technical requirements.

For the presentation of a work at Spring Forward, a fee is paid, plus expenses including travel, hotel and a per diem / hospitality for each team member.
