Spring Forward Dance Festival is a project born ten years ago by Aerowaves, a European network which promotes emerging contemporary dance artists in Europe and abroad. Aerowaves began in 1996 with a small group of European dance colleagues at the Place in London, where John Ashford was director, presenting ten promising short pieces at the Place Theatre. It expanded into a network of 44 partners and presenters from 35 European countries showing 20 emerging choreographers each year.
