Testimonial from Irish Partner

‘Aerowaves now has partners in 33 countries. The network brings together the professional knowledge, personal insight and love for dance of 45 members. Each year in October, these partners vote for the next group of Aerowaves Twenty artists. This takes place at an intensive meeting where hundreds of videos are watched and discussed.’
