The "Ball de bot" in Majorca or "Ball of pagès", as it is known on the island of Menorca, is the traditional dance of the Balearic Islands.

Formerly, these dances were part of the village festivals and meetings organized by the noble Lords for their workers in the field, when the harvest had been good. Within the "Ball de bot" there are different styles or modes: the  "bolero", the "jota", the "fandango", the "mateixa" and the "copeo".
