Get trained by renowned dance critics and attend the next Spring Forward festival in Rijeka

Springback Academy offers once again aspiring dance writers the chance to be mentored in the fundamentals of quality dance criticism in the action-packed environment of Spring Forward. Aerowaves annual festival will take place this year in Rijeka (Croatia) on 24-26 April 2020.

Springback Academy is looking for up to 10 opinionated people with an interest in, or some prior experience of writing about dance. The participants will be mentored in critical writing by lead critics including Donald Hutera (The Times), Sanjoy Roy (The Guardian), Kelly Apter (The Scotsman) and Laura Cappelle (New York Times).

Under the guidance of four experienced dance writers, participants have the chance to create, shape and share conversations about dance and hone their critical writing skills for a number of different formats. It's a fast-track way to gain experience and technique in responsible, effective, attractive dance criticism as well as to explore and understand the opportunities that digital publishing has to offer.

Note: the contributiors to Aerowaves' publication Springback Magazine are drawn exclusively from writers who have participated in the Springback Academy programme and who are part of the ever-growing community of Springback Academy ‘graduate’ writers. An additional reason to take a shot at this unique opportunity!

Apply before 17 January 2020 to Springback Academy director Oonagh Duckworth SBapplication@aerowaves.org . Find full application details here
