Roger Van Der Poel is a Portuguese-Dutch award-winning dancer. Started his dance education at the National Conservatory of Lisbon at the age of eighteen. His dance career includes Ballet Gulbenkian, Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève and, for fourteen consecutive seasons, the acclaimed Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT).

Roger’s performance repertoire includes existing works by & creations with Sol León & Paul Lightfoot, Crystal Pite, Jiri Kylián, Gabriela Carrizo, Franck Chartier, Marco Goecke, Ohad Naharin, William Forsythe and Mats Ek, among many others.

Roger has staged the work of Sol León & Paul Lightfoot and Crystal Pite internationally (Zurich Ballet, Oslo Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, Ballet British Columbia, The Australian Ballet and the Bayerisches Staatsballett) and guest teaches for dance schools and programs around the world and has been on regular faculty at NDT Summer Intensive and chuthis. Movement Intensive.

Roger was awarded the Dutch Zwaan for best dance performance of 2008 and the Encouragement Prize 2007 by the Stichting Dansersfonds’79 in Amsterdam.

In August 2020, Roger embarked on a new journey as a free-lance artist and continues to stage, teach and perform.
Most recently, Roger performed in Peter Chu’s world premieres of “Conscious Shift” and “take-off” at 92NY – Harkness Dance Center in New York City. 

Jorge’s work is renowned for merging the athleticism and excitement of sports with the compelling visuals of an art installation. He is passionate about showing off the dancers as resiliently virtuosic individuals that together form a strong and compact team. Jorge holds a degree in Sport Sciences, a Ph.D by Goldsmiths University and a Masters in Elite Athletes Coaching. He studied contemporary dance at the Royal Conservatory of Madrid and, after working as a professional dancer for different companies throughout Europe, he became a full-time lecturer at London Contemporary Dance School (The Place) for four years. Currently, Jorge is an award-winning choreographer whose work has been performed in the main theatres around the world: from the prestigious New York City Centre (USA) to the avant-garde 798 District in Beijing (China) or Sadlers Wells and the Royal Opera House in London (UK). Over the last years, he has been commissioned by companies such as Scottish Dance Theatre (UK), Beijing 9 Contemporary Dance Theatre (China), and Acosta Danza (Cuba), among others. His work has been described as: “irrepressible good fun” (The Guardian), “perfect” (The Independent) or “a Sudoku brought to life” (Londondance.com). His latest creation for the company directed by Carlos Acosta has been awarded as the best dance piece presented in Cuba in 2017. In 2014 Jorge co-founded min tala, a Pan-Arab dance company that uses contemporary dance as a peacekeeping, personal and professional development tool in areas of conflict in the Middle East. He also served as Artistic Director for Aerowaves Festival in Burgos in 2011. For the last 20 years, and based in Sport Sciences, Neurophysiology, Anthropology and Phenomenology, he has been working to crack the secret of how to train peak performance presence. Based upon his synthesis of sport and dance movement patterns, Jorge created Towards Vivencia, a cutting-edge methodology that replicates non-ordinary states of consciousness through accessible but effective body routines. He often leads workshops and coaches companies such as Akram Khan, DV8, Punchdrunk and Rambert as well as professional athletes, music and film personalities. Due to his outstanding work in dance research, he has been appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the University of Derby. Previous works’s reel: https://vimeo.com/showcase/2792060
