What we are


Blue Quote Mark

Springback Magazine keeps artists, programmers and audiences in touch with new dance across Europe.

Founded in 2018, Springback Magazine does things differently. Rather than chase the mainstream, we follow the many streams of contemporary dance practice, performance and thought that cross the continent.

We care about our coverage too. In an era of online ephemera, miscellaneous posting and informational overproduction, we place a premium on hands-on editorial guidance for our contributors. We believe this will benefit the contributors, the magazine and ultimately our readers.

Springback is more than a magazine. It is part of a wider network of dance communication in Europe.

Springback Academy is our intensive and selective writing and reviewing programme from which all the magazine’s contributors are drawn, held at Aerowaves’ annual Spring Forward festival. Writers from that programme have the opportunity to meet again during the year at an annual Assembly, a crucible for new ideas. Springback Live is our livestream media channel, finding new ways of presenting and communicating live performance.

We work by working together. Why not join us? As a subscriber or member you’ll receive special benefits and gain exclusive access to videos of new dance across Europe – and support the visibility, circulation and status of the field at the same time.
