Aerowaves is a network which annually researches younger dance work in Europe, and seeks cross-border presentation opportunities for selected artists. It has partners and associate presenters in 34 countries and offers around 100 performances each year including at its annual festival Spring Forward. Artists apply by completing a simple online form and sending a DVD of a work between 15-40 minutes. Each year the partners meet to watch extracts and compile a priority list and this research is shared with other presenters at Spring Forward where approximately 20 works are shown over 3 days.
