Aerowaves | call to choreographers resident in Europe


Aerowaves is a hub for dance discovery in Europe. Each year the Aerowaves network selects 20 of the most promising emerging choreographers ( open to those resident in Europe), promotes their work, and creates performance opportunities with Aerowaves' Partners.

Apply to Aerowaves and get a chance to have your work programmed by the partners of the network. 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 calendar all in one place.

You may be selected to perform your work at our Spring Forward Festival. We guarantee at least 10 artists on the festival programme.

Should artists be programmed by Aerowaves partners, they will be paid an agreed fee plus travel, accommodation, and per diem.
