Springback Academy

A project designed to stimulate dialogue about dance and performance while improving and promoting written criticism online. Springback Academy will take place at Aerowaves’ Spring Forward festival, 26 - 29 April inclusive 2023, in Dublin, Ireland.

After Umeå, Barcelona, Pilsen, Aarhus, Sofia, Paris and Elefsina, Springback Academy is offering once again aspiring dance writers the chance to be mentored in the fundamentals of quality dance criticism in the action-packed environment of the annual Spring Forward festival.

Under the guidance of four professional dance writers, participants have the chance to create, shape and share conversations about dance and hone their critical writing skills. It's a fast-track route 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.
