About me

Hello! I’m Jordi.

I’m a Catalan/Dutch Dance-professional based in Amsterdam.

“El Balandre” gathers my  professional dimensions under one name and one website.  

I love putting my mind / my mind and my body / at the service of collaborative projects. I feed on it: working with others broadens my perspectives.

So if you think I can contribute to your (dance)project, don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

Mail works best 🙂    jribot.th@gmail.com


Dance Critic – Author

Here you will find the articles, handouts and reviews I publish for different theatres and media. 

They can be in English, Spanish, Catalan and Dutch, so please use the tags or the search box to find the ones in your language.  

Among others, I collaborate with Movement Exposed Critical Space, Springback Magazine, El Mercat de les Flors in Barcelona,  and Los Teatros del Canal in Madrid.


Dance Pedagogy – Lecturer

One of the things I like doing the most is talking about dance. With whomever. 

So you will get why I am VERY HAPPY with my current job as teacher in Dance History at ArteZ University of the Arts (since 2019)

Besides my role as a teacher, I introduce performances, give lectures and organize other side-activities for audience engagement in collaboration with venues and dance-festivals across Europe.

Among others, I have collaborated with: Julidans Festival, Aerowaves Europe, El Mercat de les Flors, ExplicaDansa, Sismògraf Olot, Choreolab Europe, International Theatre Amsterdam.


Choreographer / performer

Finally, here you will find my portfolio. All the projects I have been an active part of in one way or another: as a performer, a choreographer, or a dance dramaturg. 

(That is: I am in the process of uploading my very chaotic archive)
