What’s in a name? Well for us … A LOT! We put a TONS of heart and energy into our company name. We want to share the meaning behind it so you will always remember APOLLA!
We believe dancers are artists AND athletes. Apolla brings sport science technology to this industry and the beautiful art of dance with our Shocks featuring, revolutionary arch support, ankle stability, energy absorption, and traction all in one. Our Shocks are NOT just the same old dance sock!
We decided on the name Apolla, derived from the Greek God “Apollo” who was also known as “the Dancer”.
Apollo was the teacher of the muses, who were the inspiration for the arts and sciences, something very near and dear to our hearts. He was also known as a healer, one of our main goals is to assist in preventing injury and keep dancers dancing!
We, of course, had to add a female aspect to the name since we are an all female owned company. The male “o” of Apollo became the female “a” of Apolla to reflect such, but do not be mistaken, our Shocks are for ALL, men and women!
We made the “a” in our company name the alpha symbol for its dual meaning of alpha being the ‘first and the best’, and also to embed the scientific aspect into our name, our products derive from a scientific base that supports the real world needs of dancers in all disciplines.
