Aerowaves holds an annual open call for emerging choreographers working in geographic Europe who want to become one of the Aerowaves Twenty.

These selected artists represent the most exciting dance makers in Europe and are promoted by Aerowaves for a year. Presenting partners of the Aerowaves Network choose to programme at least three of the Aerowaves Twenty in their venues or festivals.

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 our Partners.


Eligibility Criteria

  • You must be resident in Europe to apply
  • You may apply with only one work per year
  • The work you are submitting must have been made in geographical Europe
  • Your work must be 15-40 minutes in length
  • Your work should be easily included in a double or triple bill and have simple technical requirements
  • Work by postgraduate students is eligible, but not work by undergraduates
  • You must fill in the Aerowaves application form correctly, upload your video to Vimeo, providing us with the link and the password if necessary and send us the original video file by We Transfer
  • Previous Aerowaves applicants, successful or unsuccessful, may apply again – but you cannot apply with the same work twice
  • You must be prepared to perform for a small fee, based on a guideline amount of €200 per person travelling, per performance when undertaking performances with Partners supported by Aerowaves
  • For Spring Forward, fees are based on €100 per person travelling, per performance, in recognition of the additional promotional value of the festival

Selection criteria

These criteria have guided the decision making of the Partners for the last 20 years:

  • The work is propelled by a good idea
  • Choreographed with an originality motivated by this idea
  • Which has the confidence to omit the superfluous
  • With a clear and sturdy structure
  • Danced with clarity, verve, commitment and assurance
  • That will look good presented under limited technical conditions
  • From a company that has not toured much abroad
  • But whose experience might be enriched through Aerowaves
  • And that will have a future
